This is not a difficult sauce to make, and when you taste it, you'll find it very different from commercial brands.

I use commercial mayo in many things, such as casseroles and salad dressings, but if I'm preparing something where the mayonnaise needs to shine, I make this recipe.

It lasts about a week in the fridge. Unlike commercial mayo, do not leave this version out of the fridge, except to serve it.
