Kwendy’s Mayonnaise

Extra-Light Tasting Olive Oil

Here’s in my recipe for Homemade Mayo, adapted from the Better Homes & Gardens, New Cook Book ©1981. It’s taste really good, and doesn’t have any crap in it. I like Hellmann’s Mayo and this recipe comes pretty close to it.

If you are looking to avoid vegetable oils (Corn, Rapeseed aka Canola, Cottonseed, Soy, Sunflower, Safflower, Grapeseed, Rice bran) use Extra-Light Tasting Olive Oil. Your Mayo won’t taste like olive oil, really.
