I love mayonnaise, this little French condiment rules my world- BUT only if I make it fresh at home! I invite you to put down the Best Foods or heaven forbid the Miracle Whip and try this recipe!
I will say without hesitation that a stick blender is a must for this recipe. It was suggested to me that I use my Vitamix, however it is too flat at the bottom to really dig in there and emulsify the mayo. Fortunately this recipe is so hardy that you can’t screw it up! I just stuck my stick blender in there and POOF! MAGICAL GOODNESS!
