Mayonnaise is a thick, creamy dressing often used as a condiment. It is a stable emulsion of oil, egg yolk, and either vinegar or lemon juice, with many options for embellishment with other herbs and spices. Proteins and lecithin in the egg yolk serve as emulsifiers in both mayonnaise and hollandaise sauce.
It is characterized by a relatively long open shelf life of weeks or months under chilled storage conditions. The most relevant health trend is fat reduction, with salt reduction also important.
A homemade mayonnaise recipe is simple to make and has better flavor than store-bought. Also, mayonnaise is the “mother” (a.k.a. base) recipe for a lot of other sauces out there, including aioli, Rémoulade, and Thousand Island Dressing. Use to to brighten up classic comfort dishes such as an egg salad sandwich.
