Let's be honest; store-bought mayo is gross. Even the organic versions are full of artificial junk. You can make your own mayonnaise at home, but it does take some time and elbow grease. Plus, you can't store it for very long because it contains raw egg. I'm not against homemade mayo by any means, but, most of the time, I don't really feel like dealing with it.
That's where this recipe comes in! I was trying to come up with a spread for the BLTs we've been making and this was born. Now, it doesn't taste identical to traditional mayo, but it is yummy and an excellent substitution. And the best part is, it's super easy.

Egg Free Mayo
makes about 3/4 cup
1.5 cups plain yogurt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Line a colander with paper towel and place over a bowl. Pour yogurt into colander and allow to strain until thickened, about 4 hours. This should give you about 3/4 cup of strained yogurt when you're done.
- Once yogurt is thickened, transfer to a small bowl with mustard, vinegar, garlic powder, and salt and mix to combine.
