In this recipe I use whole egg to get a lighter mayonnaise.

Mayonnaise purists will tell you that there is no vinegar in mayonnaise, vinegar is for rémoulade dressing. It's a question of taste, personally I like it, but you can omit vinegar from this recipe if you like.

Contrary to what many people will tell you, you can succeed with mayonnaise whether you are a man, or a woman, even during your period. The power of legend in cooking is sometimes so strong...
