Homemade Mayonnaise

Makes approximately 3/4 cup

High-oleic safflower or sunflower oil makes a smooth, neutral base for mayonnaise that allows the added flavors of fresh herbs to shine through.

  • 2 tablespoons pasteurized egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh seasonal herbs such as basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, and sage, finely minced (optional)
  • 8 tablespoons high-oleic sunflower or safflower oil, divided

Put egg, lemon juice, mustard powder, honey, salt, garlic, herbs and 2 tablespoons of oil in a blender and blend on low to completely puree. Removing the top from the blender, very slowly drizzle in the remaining 6 tablespoons of oil, gradually turning the blender onto a higher speed. The mayonnaise will be thickened slightly but not as thick as commercial mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate. Use within two weeks.
