Mayonnaise – Good or Bad?
If you love a good tuna sandwich, turkey wrap or chicken salad, you might wince a little when you discover how unhealthy your beloved mayonnaise really is. Joining the 131 Method means learning about ingredients. That knowledge often leads to disappointment, because so much of what we buy contains sugar, corn syrup, inflammatory oils, gluten, dyes and things you just plain can’t pronounce. That’s why we encourage you to make the worst offenders from scratch! Homemade=healthier, so grab the few ingredients needed for this simple recipe, and test out its simplicity.
How Else to use It
We particularly love this healthy mayonnaise recipe in our No Potato – Potato Salad. Traditional recipes like this use gobs of the yucky stuff. But not us! Nope! We take the most whole, real ingredients possible to make our recipes. We are also pretty wild about our Keto Broccoli Salad. Just like you used to eat at family BBQs (only way healthier!).
Avocado oil is a staple here at the 131 Method. We love its mild flavor and high smoke point. Plus, we love it in this mayo recipe. Hold onto your hats, because this benefit list is LONG! According to Organic Facts, “avocado oil can provide an incredible boost to your overall health including protecting heart health, optimizing nutrient uptake, stimulating growth and repair, treating arthritis, improving oral hygiene, eliminating inflammation, aiding in weight loss efforts, protecting vision, defending against cancer and decreasing risk of birth defects.” WOW!

Homemade MayonnaisePrint Recipe
- 2 pasteurized egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons white wine or red wine vinegar
- 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
- ¾ cup avocado oil
- To a blender, add the eggs, vinegar, mustard and salt and blend on low-medium for 20 seconds. While blender is running, slowly pour the oil in over the next 30 seconds. Mixture will be thick and creamy.
- Save in a Mason jar in the fridge for up to three days. If you can’t think of enough ways to use it up, make a large batch of chicken or egg salad for meal prep for 3 days.
- Feel free to add various spices like garlic powder, chili and lime seasoning, lemon pepper or even horseradish.
