Mayonnaise - HomeMade

Mayonnaise - A good companion for salads and the base of most of the salad dressings.
Store-bought mayonnaise have lots of fats and oil contained in it; of course, really yummy to the tongue, but might not be the same for our li'l tummy.

We do prefer salads before many of our meals and hence, a salad dressing would be of high demand in our family. I tried investigating into the different ways of preparing mayonnaise. I would say it seems to be easy to prepare it at home rather than increasing the frequency of store visits. It requires very common ingredients; the only one that may trouble you would be the Mustard. You can grind mustard with or without peel-on; I would however suggest the latter one as it makes the mayonnaise immensely richer, creamier and tastier.

Check out the simplest and healthiest recipe that I came out with:-

Ingredients (Serves 2)

Egg yolks - 2
Mustard - 2 tbsp
Lemon juice - 2 tsp
Oil (preferably Olive Oil) - 1 to 11/2 cups
Black pepper - as needed
Salt - as needed


Just put all the ingredients in a blender, and blend in low speed, adding oil little by little until you have the desired consistency.

Isn't that easy? Give a try..
