Preserved Lemon Mayonnaise



I love preserved lemons! I find that not a lot of people like it, but it gives the lemon/citrus flavour to a dish without the tangy sourness that you get with fresh lemons. You can make this from scratch – make mayonnaise from scratch – or you can use store bought mayonnaise and add the preserved lemons and olive oil to it. I have done it both ways – I find that I like to make an aioli-style mayonnaise when I make it from scratch (with a little bit of garlic) and it works superb!


  • 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1-2 pieces of preserved lemon quarter
  • 2 tsps of olive oil



  1. Remove the pit of the preserved lemon. Gently rinse the lemon rind, and chop into small pieces.plemonmayo03
  2. Mix into the mayonnaise, and slightly thin the mixture with a tsp-2 tsps of olive oil.
Serve immediately.
