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.
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.
Place hot water, vinegar (or lemon juice), sugar, salt, and mustard in Vita-mix container. Clamp action-dome in place. Turn black speed control to HIGH. Lift red impact lever UP to ON position and run until steam rises and ingredients are boiling, 5 to 7 minutes.
When steam rises, turn speed to LOW and while machine continues to run add 2/3 cup flour through action-dome. When mixture thickens and as machine is still running, add 4 eggs or 8 egg yolks.
When thickened, add to running Vita-Mix in a slow steady stream 2 cups vegetable oil. Stop. Store in refrigerator.
Makes about 4 cups.

This is one that I have used:
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.
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.
