Mayonnaise in dish with fresh basil leaves.Homemade mayonnaise is so much better than store-bought! It's very easy, too, since the blender does all the work. You just have to have a fairly steady hand and drizzle the oil in slowly.


You can make so many variations, too. Try a little garlic. Add herbs like tarragon, a touch of cayenne, or whatever you like best. You can use your favorite vinegar, or use lemon juice, lime, even grapefruit juice. You can use different oils too.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard, or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3/4 - 1 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt, or to taste


Wash, rinse, and dry the egg. Add the egg, mustard, juice, salt, and any herbs, plus 1/4 cup oil, to your blender. Blend on low for 1 - 2 minutes. Increase blender speed to medium low and drizzle the rest of the oil in very slowly. It should take a minute or two to add it in. When the ingredients have emulsified completely, stop adding the oil. Chill before using.

This should be used within 3 days - if it lasts that long!

Doesn't contain the high fructose as found in commercial mayonnaise. You will never go back to store bought mayonnaise.

This is one that I have used:
1 egg
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or vinegar
dash of salt
dash of mustard
Blend at high speed for about 30 seconds. Remove the top in middle of the lid and pour in a 1/4 cup of light vegetable oil in a stream while the blender is going.


Continue to blend until it is a very light color. Taste and adjust the seasonings. I also use this as a base for making creamy salad dressings by adding different herbs or other seasonings.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Makes 1 cup

1 large egg, room temperature
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lemon

1. Wrap the outside and bottom of a 1-quart bowl in a damp towel to secure it in place on the work surface. Combine egg and salt with a large balloon whisk, mixing until foamy and pale. Whisking constantly, add oils a few drops at a time, and then in a steady stream as the mixture emulsifies.


Add lemon juice; blend briefly. Add additional salt and lemon juice to taste. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Note: Raw eggs should not be used in food prepared for pregnant women, babies, young children, the elderly, or anyone whose health is compromised.
