Soooooooo full disclosure here, I have never been a fan of mayonnaise. You’re probably thinking “Um, what? Isn’t this post dedicated to mayo?”
YES. But hear me out.
I think it all started from an attempt to do a Hellmans mayo hair mask when I was around 13 years old. The smell you guys. Mayo heating up on your head, you can’t escape it. ughhhhh. So gross. Ever since then, even the whiff of mayo makes me lose my appetite immediately.
But then a little while ago I tried my aunt’s homemade lemon tarragon mayo with some bbq chicken wings (thas a whole other post to talk about how good that was) in short, it was sooo good. TOTALLY different flavor than the stuff on the store shelves. I decided I’d give making my own a try.
Not only was I surprised how easy it was to make, but also totally surprised how delicious it is! There are so many flavor combo’s you can think up. I wanted to try a spicy one.
Of course last week you caught a glimpse of it on these great tacos that we shared. Spicy, creamy, delicious. It’s the perfect way to get some healthy fats and tons of flavor to the tacos, or sandwiches or whatever else you put mayo on (I told you I’m new to this mayo world) :)
The possible best part of this, is that you make it right in the wide mouth jar that you store it in. NO DISHES!!!
Entire process is about 30 seconds.
TA-DA! Done. And all with ingredients you can name and recognize (unlike store-bought). I suggested a few flavor add ins but basically you could do anything you wanted!
This spicy sriracha one is so good. Next on my list I want to try a curry mayo, & do a curried chicken salad of some type.
A few action shots so you can see how thick and creamy it is. And of course, perfect on these delicious caramelized pork tacos with pineapple cucumber salsa.
Have any of you made mayo before? Do you have any outstanding flavor combos I should add to my list? I’d love to hear from you!
