About this recipe: There's nothing quite as good as homemade mayonnaise. The best part is that you can add anything you want to it. For example: mustard, pepper, garlic or shallots. This mayonnaise is great as a sandwich filler, salad dressing or thinned down for a dip.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • extra-virgin olive oil to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil to taste

Prep:6min  ›  Ready in:6min 

  1. In a deep bowl, mix together the yolk, 1/2 the vinegar and mustard. Season with salt, pepper and mix well. Slowly add the vegetable oil (almost drop by drop), whilst constantly beating with a hand whisk.
  2. Once the mayonnaise begins to take in the oil, replace the vegetable oil by the extra-virgin olive oil. Continue to slowly add the olive oil and continuously beat until smooth. When smooth, add the remaining vinegar and beat for 1 minute more.


If the mayonnaise is too thick, add 1 teaspoon of warm water to make it lighter and less firm.
