Do you ever crave a BLT but want to switch it up? Here is a simple recipe you’ll love – and you get to make your own mayonnaise.Trust me, once you make homemade mayo you will never want to go back to store-bought again! It’s so easy, fresh and delicious.There are a ton of GREAT wrap alternatives on the market too – check out your grocery or natural foods store for wraps made out of coconut or almond flour.
For the wrap:
2 slices of Applegate or other uncured/pastured/nitrate-free bacon
2 tomato slices
Lettuce of your choice
1 tablespoon homemade mayo
Coconut or other gluten-free wrap
For the Mayo:
1 extra-large egg
1 cup of oil: extra-light olive oil, avocado oil, or a blend of the two
3 tsp. Apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
Pinch of salt (Himalayan sea salt is great)
Step 1: Make the mayo. There are 2 options, depending on what equipment you have.
High speed blender (like a Vitamix): place all the ingredients in the blender and blend ‘em up till the mayonnaise appears. All the oil should be fully incorporated into the mixture.
Immersion mixer: Place all the ingredients in a glass jar or other narrow-mouthed container and immerse the mixer all the way to the bottom of the container. Begin mixture, and continue till all the oil is incorporated into the resulting mayonnaise.
Note: You also can include herbs, spices, garlic, etc. into your mayo.
Step 2: Assemble the wrap! Grab a wrap, slather on the mayo, add the tomato, lettuce and bacon, and voila!
