Sour Cream Mayonnaise Substitute



  • 1 cup thick sour cream (you can also use yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste



In a small stainless bowl, beat together sour cream, mustard, and egg yolks.

Slowly add the olive oil, alternating with the vinegar, stirring between each addition. A hand-crank eggbeater or wire whisk works well for this part.

Once you have blended all of the ingredients, salt and pepper your “mayo” until it is to your taste. Chill for at least four hours before serving.

You can add anything to your sour cream mayo: herbs, spices, garlic, onions… anything! If the mayo turned out too thin for your liking, you can either add more sour cream to thicken it, or just use it as a delicious chilled salad dressing.
