Modified from recipe on Healthy Indulgences Blog
I've got a recipe on my blog, but have started using this one, which works PERFECT every time. You just CANNOT GO WRONG with this recipe. The key to success is in the process, so pay close attention!!!
1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
1/2 Tbsp mustard powder
1 tsp sea salt (start with less, as this is too much for me)
1 Tbsp vinegar (ACV)
2 Tbsp pickle juice OR 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
Scant 2 cups oil: do NOT use EVOO or Olive oil...use Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
Combine all ingredients in a 2 cup measuring cup, adding the oil LAST! Place head of immersion blender in bottom of the measuring cup and Blend.
Move head around the bottom of the measuring cup, but don't lift up. Keep blending bottom ingredients until thoroughly emulsified, then do that some more. You want to go beyond what you think you need, time-wise, for blending.
THEN...Move blender up and down now, getting all the oil on the top mixed in. Do not tilt sideways!
The KEY to success with this is blend the bottom ingredients BEYOND what your mind tells you is enough -- at least 1-2 minutes, before lifting.
This is a video that shows the process perfectly -- do not use it for ingredients, as some of their measurements are off and at least one ingredient is not compliant.
Be sure and watch the FOLLOWING VIDEO (click on that link!) to see the process, but don't follow the list of ingredients!
