This is excellent, cheap and easy. You will never buy another bottle! From It is a good base for potato or egg or tuna or chicken salad too.

Delicious. What a base for tartar sauce, 1000 Island, blue cheese, etc! I used 2 tbl red wine vinegar, 1 tbl rice vinegar and a Miracle Whip base - no need for sugar...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Measure the mayonnaise into a bowl.
  2. Stir in the oil, 2 tablespoons at a time.
  3. Make sure all of the oil is blended in before adding more.
  4. Add the onion, and vinegar.
  5. Stir again, until all of the vinegar is absorbed.
  6. Add the sugar, basil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.
  7. Blend well.
  8. Store the mixture in a pint sized canning jar in the fridge. This may also be prepared by whirling everything together in a blender until it is smooth. Try it on your favorite salads, and also on baloney sandwiches, and in pita bread sandwiches. Excellent.
