Summer-Salad Mayonnaise

Homemade mayo has a distinct lusciousness. Making it in the blender is foolproof. (Store-bought can be used in a pinch.) Mix with boiled potatoes, shredded cabbage, or seafood for upgrades to warm-weather favorites.

    Can egg substitute be used in place of the raw eggs? I'm in Arizona and even the freshest of fresh eggs make me a little nervous, especially in the summer heat.
