1. Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl of the
food processor. Process the egg yolks, salt, mustard,
lemon juice and water on Low until smooth, about 30
seconds. With the machine running on Low, slowly
add the oil through the drizzle hole in the pusher
until all oil is incorporated and the mayonnaise is
emulsifi ed and homogenous.
2. Scrape down sides; taste and adjust seasoning
Note: For fresh herb mayonnaise: Process 1⁄3 cup
fi rmly packed fresh herbs (e.g., parsley, dill, tarragon,
basil, etc.), stems removed, with the yolks before adding
the oil.
For a bolder-fl avored mayonnaise, increase the salt by
¼ teaspoon, the Dijon mustard by ½ teaspoon and
lemon juice to 1 tablespoon.
