  • Add mustard and lemon juice. Pulse ingredients until well combined.

  • With motor running, add oil in a slow, steady stream (mixture should become thick and emulsified). Stir in cornichons and onion. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.

Cook's Notes

If the mayonnaise separates after the oil is added, the mixture has broken. To bring it to a creamy state, add an egg yolk and 1 teaspoon tepid water to a clean bowl, and slowly add the broken mayonnaise while whisking constantly. Then, whisk in 1/4 cup more oil.
