1. Put the egg yolks, water, lemon juice, salt, and mustard
in the work bowl and press Chop to process until smooth,
about 15 seconds. While running on Chop continuously,
add the oil slowly through one of the drizzle holes on the
cover until all oil is incorporated and the mayonnaise is
emulsified and homogenous.
2. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly.
Note: For fresh herb mayonnaise: Process ⅓ cup firmly
packed fresh herbs (e.g., parsley, dill, tarragon, basil, etc.),
stems removed, with the yolks before adding the oil.
For a bolder-flavored mayonnaise, increase the salt by
¼ teaspoon, the Dijon by ½ teaspoon and lemon juice
to 1 tablespoon
