    This make perfect mayo. I added a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and I used healthy olive oil. The trick for ALL mayonnaise is to use ROOM TEMPERATURE INGREDIENTS!!!

    I just made it and it works. I made it in a food processor. I also used lemon juice instead of vinegar. It tastes wonderful, so much better than store bought.
