Sesame whispers sweet-nothings in your ear with this light and tangy adaptation. This recipe avoids vegetable oil while incorporating the complete egg to deliver a healthy-choice alternative spread. Fresh mayo should be used within 2 weeks or less. Always serve chilled. Put on sandwiches, in a light crab salad, or use in deviled eggs with a spice injection. Use a pasteurized egg, if possible.

Cook's Notes

Consider adding a dash of onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, or dill.

Turn into a dressing with more herbs, cayenne, or your favorite hot sauce.

Olive oil is not recommended - even extra virgin, or extra-extra-really virgin. Mild sesame flavor should be detectable.

Alternatively, an immersion blender may be used directly in the wide-mouthed jar that will store the finished product. Begin fully immersed to achieve emulsification, then raise and lower slowly to complete the blend.

2.8.16 Uunfortunately it didn't emulsify into a mayonnaise. The taste was OK but it ended up more like a thin sauce so we used it for dipping our egg rolls. I'm not yet experienced with my Vitamix blender so it could be that the speed was too high and mayo broke? I don't want to discourage others from trying; this simply didn't work for me. Read More
