Check out this delicious and easy Spanish Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe and get your food to the next level.
Nowadays, not many people prepare home-made mayonnaise anymore.
Some don’t have the time, others worry about food poisoning from the raw eggs.
In Spain; however, people still prepare their own mayonnaise for dishes like Ensalada Rusa (Russian Potato Salad) and other Spanish tapas dishes.
It only takes ten minutes to prepare a delicious mayonnaise. So the time excuse doesn’t count.
And if you worry about food poising, I recommend to use pasteurized eggs.
How to make homemade mayonnaise
Crack two eggs in a small bowl and start beating them with a stick blender.
Then, slowly drizzle extra virgin olive oil into the eggs. You want to use really good oil!
Blend everything until the mixture turned to mayonnaise. In the end, add salt and a bit of fresh lemon juice.
