  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 1/4 cups of neutral flavoured oil such as canola oil


  • Place all of the ingredients into a narrow jug or bowl.
  • Use a stick or immersion blender to combine the ingredients. You'll notice that almost immediately the mayonnaise will begin to emulsify. Blend until combined.
  • Taste for seasoning, and if the mayonnaise is a little thicker than you would like simply add more canola oil and blend.


The mayonnaise will keep in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
