Curious about the citric acid? It might admittedly take a little extra work to go get it (you can find it in your grocery store’s baking section), but it’s 1000% worth it, especially if you’re sensitive to the earthy flavors in your infused oil. The bright pop of flavor from the citric acid masks any flower-y notes really well. Use organic ingredients for best results.
Infused DIY Ranch Dressing
Make your own infused DIY ranch dressing with LĒVO.
2 organic, free range egg yolks
2 tbsp finely minced garlic
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
¼ tsp sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
15 tablespoons canola oil (avocado oil also works)
1 tablespoon LEVO-infused canola oil*
2 tbsps of buttermilk
1 tbsp of LĒVO-infused mayonnaise
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tsp of rice vinegar (optional)
1 to 3 tsp of chopped fresh chives, parsley, and/or mint (optional)
Ingredients for Infused Mayonnaise
Ingredients for Ranch Dressing
Set your Activate cycle and relax (remember, this is a dry cycle, no oil or butter should be added until you begin infusing!)
Fill the LEVO reservoir with the oil. If using canola oil, set it to 175-185°F for 2.5+ hours. For avocado oil, set your LEVO to 200°F for 2.5+ hours.
Relax! Once it's complete, dispense and set aside.
Instructions for Infused Mayonnaise
Finely mince garlic. Set aside.
Separate yolks from the whites.
Add garlic, egg yolks, mustard, salt, and sugar to a blender or the bowl of a stand mixer. You can also do this by hand if you have a whisk and a well-trained whisking arm.
Pulse/whip until mixture is combined.
Slowly begin to drizzle in oil a little at a time until combined.
Continue to drizzle oil until mixture thickens. Add lemon juice.
If your mixture breaks (the oil separates and does not hold) stop pulsing. In a separate bowl, add 1 egg yolk and 1 tsp mustard. Slowly pour in mixture while whisking until whipped mayo texture returns.
Set aside and cover. Keep refrigerated and use within one week.
Instructions for Infused Ranch Dressing
