Best Mayonnaise EVER!

you will not need a mixer for this recipe, just a stick blender, and i personally blend the ingredients straight in a large jar.

it is really creamy and full of flavor and by far the greatest recipe from all the mayonnaise recipes i have ever tried.
you dont even have to separate the egg yolks from the whites!

it makes about 2 cups

you can preserve it in the fridge for about 2 weeks or so, but i wouldnt be sure cause it never makes it that long!

lets go

2 eggs
2 teaspoons of dry mustard
2-3 good pinches of salt (depends on your taste)
2 tablespoons balsamico vinegar
2 cups of sunflower oil

put first 4 ingredients in the jar and pulse 2-3 times so they get incorporated
while you are holding the buzz button pressed, slowly drizzle the oil in a thin stream
mix until it drinks up all the oil and all the ingredients have become a moderate stiff cream exactly like the mayonnaise's.
put the lid on and refrigerate.

yields about 32 tablespoons with 126 calories per tablespoon.
