Classic Homemade Mayonnaise

1 c Light olive oil
1 c Vegetable or safflower oil
2 lg Eggs
1/4 ts Dry mustard
3/4 ts Coarse salt; or to taste
2 tb Fresh lemon juice


Combine the oils in a large glass measuring cup. In the bowl of a food processor, add the eggs, mustard, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Process until the mixture is foamy and pale, about 1 1/2 minutes. With the machine running, add the oil, drop by drop, until the mixture starts to thicken (about 1/2 cup of oil total); do not stop the machine at this point or the mayonnaise may not come together. Add the remaining oil in a slow, steady stream. When all of the oil has been incorporated, slowly add the lemon juice. Taste and adjust the mayonnaise for seasoning. Fresh mayonnaise can be kept, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Makes 2 1/2 cups.
