Basic Homemade Mayonnaise
A rich mayonnaise

3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 cup olive oil
1 cup canola oil

1. Place the egg yolks, mustard, salt, and lemon juice in a food processor. Process for 10 seconds.
2. With motor running, add the oil, drop by drop at first. After a few tablespoons have been added, start adding oil in a thin stream. Continue until all the oil is added and the mayonnaise has thickened. Taste for seasoning, and add a little additional salt or lemon juice if desired.

This recipe yields a rich mayonnaise. If you desire a thinner sauce, add a little bit of water to the finished mayonnaise. Makes about 2 cups
