Classic Mayonnaise

  • Preparation 10 MIN
  • Makes about 250 ml (1 cup) 





  1. In a medium bowl, combine the lemon juice, egg yolk, mustard, and salt. Slowly add approximately a third of the oil, drop by drop, whisking vigorously. When the mayonnaise begins to set, add the remaining oil in a stream, beating continuously. Season with pepper. 

In a food processor or blender

  1. In the container of the device, place the lemon juice or vinegar, whole egg, mustard, and salt. Cover and blend for a few seconds. Adjust the speed at low rpm. While the device is running, add the oil through the opening in the lid, in a continuous stream (the mayonnaise will set quickly, in less than a minute). If necessary, stop the machine and use a spatula to clean the side of the container or to push the ingredients into the blades.
