Homemade mayonnaise calls for just few ingredients and a blender, but tastes so simple to make and has better flavor than store-bought.
Mayonnaise is generally served as a light dip for an appetizer. Its creamy and slightly tangy flavor goes well with sandwich and salad too. Just spread this mayonnaise on your toast and you are ready to have it.
When you add oil and acid, it gives bright acidity and a fresh flavor to the mayonnaise. I have seen my friends adding fresh herbs, garlic, agave syrup for more flavor. Most of the times, it is always fun to play around with blending ingredients.
You can make mayonnaise/mayo with coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, and even butter. While making this mayonnaise, make sure that ingredients are not too hot or too cold as it will cause the mayonnaise to separate.
