Homemade Mayo

There are some things I absolutely love about this time of year.

Cookouts with friends.
Being able to be outside without sweating from head to toe.
Tomatoes. Oh fresh tomatoes. Absolutely nothing beats a perfectly ripened tomato.

Hubby and I have been getting about 10 big tomatoes in our CSA for the past few weeks. It’s been amazing. We’ve been eating tomatoes in all sorts of salads, sandwiches, and just sliced and seasoned.

It was actually Hubby’s mom who encouraged me to make homemade mayo. She told me that it was really easy and really brightens a tomato sandwich. And boy was she right.

Now when I say making mayo is really easy, I’m not kidding. It takes about 2 minutes total. You put most of the ingredients in your food process or blender. Once everything has been whizzed around, you stream in a mixture of olive oil and canola oil while the food processor is still running. After about a minute, you have this:

Who knew mayo could be so pretty to look at… I used garlic olive oil to give my mayo a garlic kick. That’s one of the great things about making your own mayo. You can throw in flavored oils, or mix up the spices to your tastes.

I have been eating tomato, mayo, and lettuce sandwiches every day since I made this mayo. It pairs so well with the fresh tomatoes, I can’t imagine ever buying mayo again.

    I love that you use canned chickpeas for this! When I saw the title I thought “mmm, tasty, but you probably have to do dried chickpeas and blah blah blah”. But you don’t! And it’s a perfect quick use for the extra cans I have in the pantry so that I don’t have to keep making hummus. 🙂

    I’ve already put some of your Super Bowl recipes on my menu for Sunday, including the mini ham & cheese sandwiches. We live in Pittsburgh and are huge Steelers fans, so we’re REALLY EXCITED!!!

    Hope your Superbowl menu turns out great. Although I have to admit, I’ll be rooting against your team!

    Neev – I’m really not sure how to do this with dried chickpeas. I’ve only used canned. I would assume you would want to soak them overnight first.
