Smak Dab founder Carly tasting homemade mayonnaise on her finger

Homemade Mayonnaise


  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp Smak Dab Mustard –White Wine Herb, Curry Dijon, Hot Honey Jalapeño or Hot and Sweet Dill
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar  
  • 2 cups canola oil


  1. In a food processor, add the eggs, mustard and salt. Start the motor, and very slowly drizzle in the oil (almost dribbling at first). Once the egg mixture starts to thicken a bit, pour a little faster until the mayo looks thick and creamy. Stop the motor and add the lemon juice.
  2. Run the processor again until the lemon juice is mixed in, then stop again to taste for seasoning.
  3. Add additional salt and lemon juice if needed. (Makes about 2½ cups of mayo)

Use this basic homemade mayo as a base for your potato or pasta salads, sandwiches and burgers, or creamy salad dressings!
