WHAT IS MAYONNAISE?
Mayonnaise is a creamy, tangy condiment that has become an essential part of many popular dishes worldwide. Not only is it present in salads and sandwiches, but also homemade sauces, dips and desserts.
Mayonnaise begins with a base of egg yolks, salt, mustard, lemon juice and oil. It gets its creamy texture from the oil whipped together slowly with the egg yolk until it forms an opaque emulsion. As for its flavorings, you can incorporate herbs or spices for a bite or mustard for extra zing.
