Homemade Mayonnaise for Potato Salad


1 person made this

Homemade mayonnaise is just so much better on potato salads or with eggs. It's not hard to make, the trick is to add the oil very slowly while whisking.

  1. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks with 1/2 the vinegar or lemon juice and the mustard, until thick. Add a little salt to taste.
