Ingredients

  • 1 cup 225 ml mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp italian seasoning, see ingredients below.
Italian seasoning
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp dried basil
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp dried oregano
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp dried sage
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp sea salt (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix mayonnaise and Italian seasoning in a small bowl.
  2. Set aside for 30 minutes or more to let the flavors develop. Check if it needs additional seasoning.
  3. Keep refrigerated for up to 4-5 days.

Italian seasoning

  1. Thoroughly mix together the spices. Pour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. If you use whole seeds, grind in a grinder either in advance or when cooking.
  3. Keep the spices in a dark, dry and room temperature area. Small tin cans are great.
  4. Make a big batch to last for 4–6 months; after this the spices will lose some flavor and color. They won't go bad but will be less powerful.

Keto: Spring is in the air #1

Longer days with more light; the warmth of the sun coaxing everything into bloom. Yes, spring is in the air.  And while we all love cheesy casseroles and hearty stews, in spring our fancy turns to lighter, fresher meals with vibrant young veggies, cold plates, fresh herbs and tart bright flavors like the refreshing burst of lemon.

With this spring-inspired meal plan starts off the week with a breakfast of vegetarian keto scramble and grilled pork skewers with ribbon zoodles for dinner. (Eat leftovers for lunch, or skip it.) Other fare during the week includes a keto salad Niçoise, a seared salmon with asparagus and a lemon-flavored chicken soup.

This meal plan will keep you below 20 g net carbs per day.

    How can this keep for 6 months if the original Mayonnaise recipe only keeps for 5 days?

    4-6 months is for the seasoning mix.

    Ha ha I thought that’s a lot of herbs for that amount of mayo.
    Then of course I realised this was for prep and storage.
    Looking forward to testing this out on my family. Thank you

    Does anyone out there realize that Italians don't eat "salad". Vegetable and preserved meats yes.... not salad.
