This works quite well. I only had limes rather than lemons but it made very little difference to the taste. Thanks Angela for a good reliable recipe.

I just made this and the taste is great. I used rice vinegar and extra light olive oil. I had to look up whole grain mustard, it's just mustard with some whole mustard seeds in it and luckily I had some of that. It's very tasty but it didn't come out as thick as I expected. Maybe it will thicken up as it chills in the fridge.

So cool! I've never made homemade mayo before, it was so easy and I liked adding the oil and watching it emulsify. Also much tastier than the store bought stuff!

I wouldn't suggest using extra virgin olive oil because it has a much more over-powering flavor. Vegetable or canola oil makes a mayo that is much more palate pleasing. Thanks though

Absolutely amazing. Wow. Used dijon mustard, rice vinegar, and soybean oil (I love extra virgin olive oil, but figured it would be too much for my husband.) Thanks!

I had to look up Whole Grain Mustard, which I didn' have so I used regular prepared mustard like hobbgal did. I used the rice vinegar instead of balsamic. I think I'll use the balsamic next time to see how it tastes. This was a very tangy mayo and came out too strong for palattes used to store bought stuff. I used it in a potato salad and it really made the difference. I'll never make a mayo based salad with store stuff again. I'll switch different vinegars and oils based on the salad or whatever that I'm making, so I think this will give me a very versatile mayo to use from now on. So long, store bought!

We liked the taste and consistency of this mayo. I did not have light olive oil and did not want the strong flavor of extra virgin, so I used vegetable oil and used the mayo for a potato salad.

Great recipe. I used all sunflower oil and balsamic vinegar. I didn't have whole grain mustard-I still don't know what this is exactly. I used prepared mustard. It is super for sandwiches. I am going to try it on potato salad and deviled eggs! Thanks for posting this recipe!

This is similar to a homemade mayonnaise recipe I used to make from a book on Hypoglycemia but I like the taste of this one better and it's still healthy. Thanks for sharing :)
