Recall the raves about fresh mayonnaise?  In the age of Cuisinart fresh mayo spiced to taste is nothing special.  So give it a try and get ready for a big surprise.  Easy to make, mayonnaise is ready in five minutes and can keep for several days in the fridge.  Play with different seasonings to create your flavor.

so much better

Mayonnaise (2 cups)

  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 ½ cups canola oil


  • 1 spring onion, sliced

Using a food processor on the low setting, combine egg and egg yolks for a 15 second count.  Keep the processor going and add salt, mustard and lemon juice.  Begin adding the oil in a slow drizzle until all of it’s finished.  If your food processor has a drip hole on top of the feeding attachment I recommend using it.

Remove to a separate container and fold in the spring onion for flavor.

This is a basic recipe.  You can substitute lime for lemon, or flavor with cayenne pepper, Old Bay, garlic or most any other seasoning.  Enjoy.
