Pesto Mayonnaise

Pesto Mayonnaise

Pesto Mayonnaise


1 cup canola oil.

1/4 cup olive oil.

1 egg.

2 tsp of Dijon mustard (I used the grainy peppercorn).

salt and pepper to taste.

1 1/2 tbsp of vinegar (I used 1 tblsp of balsamic vinegar).

1/2 tsp sugar.

2 tbsp of basil pesto (refer the tip).


Most hand blenders come with a beaker or you could use a glass bowl.

Start by adding pesto, mustard, salt, sugar, pepper and vinegar to the bowl.

Then break the egg into this followed by the oils. Gradually immerse the blender into the mixture and do not muddle this.

Pulse it a few times and you will see the mixture emulsify, at this point you can use the normal speed gradually raising the blender just till the top but not above (or you will have the mayo splashing out). This should just take you about 2 minutes max.
