  • 2 dates
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard compliant if on a Whole30
  • 1/3 cup mayo compliant if on a Whole30


  • Cut the pit out of the dates with a sharp knife on a cutting board and chop the dates into small pieces. Put the pieces in a single layer in a microwavable bowl, then pour the water over the date. Place the bowl in the microwave and set it for 3 minutes.
  • While it’s heating up, be sure and check it every 30 seconds or so to make sure the water isn’t bubbling up over the bowl. You may want to stop it at the 2 minute mark and see if the water is mostly evaporated. If not, keep heating until there's only a shallow layer of liquid. Once done take the bowl out of the microwave and use a fork to mash up the date with the remaining water into a paste.
  • Pour the date paste into a small food processor or a larger bowl you can use an immersion blender with. Measure out the mayo, mustard, and apple cider vinegar with measuring spoons and put them in with the date paste (if you’re doing a Whole30, be sure and use Whole30 compliant ingredients).
  • Blend the mixture together until it's well combined. Pour it out into a container with a lid and store it in the fridge until you need it! It will keep for 7-10 days in the refrigerator.
