Note: The United States Department of Agriculture has issued a warning about the use of raw eggs. If you feel you may be at risk, do not make dishes which feature raw eggs, including mayonnaise.

For variety, add finely snipped chives, chopped tarragon, crushed anchovies, lemon zest, or capers. For a lovely green-tinted mayonnaise, process fresh basil leaves in a blender or food processor witha little olive oil and stir into the mayonnaise. Lemon mayonnaise lasts for several days. Just wrap tightly and store in the refrigerator. Format Norma Wrenn npxr56b
