Ingredients for Mayonnaise

Don't despair if you need a quick potato salad and can't find any mayonnaise. Make your own. It really is easy, especially if you use a blender to make it.

This homemade mayonnaise recipe makes about 1 cup. Once you make it, you probably won't be buying any more from the store in a hurry. It just tastes so delicious!

2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon salt
2-3 teaspoons lemon juice
3/4 cup olive oil

Have all the ingredients at room temperature
Put the egg yolks into a small basin, add the salt and 2-3 teaspoons of the lemon juice and mix thoroughly.

Add the oil drip by drop, stirring all the time until the sauce becomes thick and shiny.

Add the rest of the oil in a thin stream, stirring constantly. Add lemon juice to taste.

As I said, it easier to make in a blender, and this recipe can easily be adapted for that.
