Coconut Oil Recipes

by Lita Lee

Mayonnaise

one egg
6 tbsp. cider vinegar
1/2-tsp salt
1/2-tsp dry mustard
Spike or other seasoning to taste

Add above ingredients to your blender.

Then, very slowly dribble into blender one cup of oil consisting of about 3/4-cup coconut oil (melted and cooled) plus 1/4-cup extra virgin olive oil to the blender and blend until smooth.
(The more coconut oil, the thicker the dressing). (If oil added too fast, mixture will curdle).

If desired, add the following ingredients to the mayonnaise you just made to make a thick and creamy Ranch dressing that can be used as a substitute for mayonnaise:

Lita's Ranch Salad Dressing

1-1/4 cup buttermilk
4-6 tbsp. or so sour cream, cream cheese or Nancy's honey yogurt
onion flakes
garlic powder
salt
juice of one lemon
Spike or other seasoning to taste
black pepper
parsley flakes

Blend until smooth. Refrigerate.

This dressing will thicken as it cools. You can use it instead of mayonnaise and can dilute it with more buttermilk if you want thinner Ranch dressing. If this tastes too tart, add a little honey.

Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

9 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
9 tbsp. melted and cooled coconut oil
6 tbsp. mustard of your choice
(not dry)
10-12 tbsp. apple cider or red wine vinegar (taste first)
2-3-tsp honey (add more if you have a sweet tooth but taste this first)

Shake ingredients in a jar. Don't refrigerate.

In cold climates may have to run hot water over jar.

If you like a creamy honey mustard dressing, add some buttermilk or sour cream plus some nice herbs such as parsley, chives, and so on. Use your imagination.

Other suggestions for using coconut oil in your diet:

(1) When you make pastries, substitute 50% coconut oil for whatever fat is recommended (hopefully butter, or some other healthy fat).

(2) When you fry or sauté eggs, fish, veggies, or whatever, toss in a tbsp. or so of coconut oil. Add whatever butter or olive oil you wish, for flavor.

(3) Some of my clients add some coconut oil to their morning oatmeal.
