Homemade Olive Oil Mayo: A Creamy, Wholesome Recipe

There's something incredibly satisfying about making your own condiments, and homemade mayonnaise is no exception. With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up a creamy, flavorful batch of mayo that's free from additives and preservatives. In this recipe, we'll show you how to make homemade mayo using olive oil, perfect for sandwiches, salads, and dipping.


  • 1 large egg (at room temperature)

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed)

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Salt, to taste

  • Pepper, to taste


1. Prepare Your Ingredients:

- Make sure the egg is at room temperature as this helps with emulsification. Measure out the other ingredients for easy access.

2. Combine Egg, Mustard, and Lemon Juice:

- In a blender or food processor, add the room-temperature egg, Dijon mustard, and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

3. Blend Until Smooth:

- Start blending at low speed for a few seconds until the ingredients are combined.

4. Slowly Add Olive Oil:

- While the blender or food processor is running, begin adding the extra virgin olive oil very slowly in a steady stream. This should take around 2-3 minutes. The key is to add it gradually to allow for proper emulsification.

5. Watch for Thickening:

- As you add the olive oil, you'll notice the mixture thickening and becoming creamy. Continue to blend until all the oil is incorporated.

6. Season to Taste:

- Once the mayo is creamy and smooth, stop the blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Blend for a few more seconds to ensure the seasonings are evenly distributed.

7. Transfer and Store:

- Transfer your homemade olive oil mayo to a clean, airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Make sure to label it with the date.


  • If your mayo is too thin, you can slowly drizzle in a bit more olive oil while blending to thicken it up.

  • Enjoy the rich, fruity notes of extra virgin olive oil in your mayo for a distinct flavor.

Making your own homemade mayo with olive oil not only allows you to control the ingredients but also results in a fresher, tastier condiment for your culinary creations. Enjoy the creamy goodness of your homemade olive oil mayo on sandwiches, in dressings, or as a dipping sauce for a variety of dishes. Say goodbye to store-bought mayo and embrace the joy of crafting your own!
