Came together in no time. Yum, love the texture, too. Half the salt was perfect. I used the whole yield in a bean salad as the dressing. Worked out perfect!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Begin with all ingredients at room temperature, they will emulsify more readily.
  2. In a food processor or blender, process the yolks, salt, mustard, cayenne, lemon juice and water together to form a base.
  3. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream.
  4. The mixture will take on a whitish color just like mayonnaise (of all things).
  5. (After 2 or 3 days covered in the refrigerator make sure it passes the sniff test before using again.).
