I don't understand why people don't realize that vegetable oil is actually soybean oil. Look closely at the contents description on the side of the bottle and it'll say "soybean oil" every time. Just thought you might like to know!
I've made this for years, using a blender - a great recipe. Don't try to make this if a thunderstorm is looming, however - it may not emulsify well (I know, it sounds like an old wive's tale, but it's true).

I make it every week at home!
Not to worry about the raw egg. The acid in the vinegar "cooks" the egg just as it cooks the raw fish in Sushi.
Hey concerned, ever had mayo? ALWAYS raw egg yolks in it... still concerned?
Anyways, this one is great, and it's easy to customize by adding a little roasted and pureed garlic to make a great aioli or some horseradish for a perfect roast beef sandwich topping. Bravo.

Did I miss that this recipe was cooked. No way would I use a raw egg in a recipe that is never cooked. sorry....
Save time and effort put in all except oil in the blender. add oil last in a slow steady stream. works perfectly.

Great recipe! Is so fun and easy. And it is really thick and creamy. Anyone should give it a try.

Good, but don't bother with all that whisking. Put all the ingredients into a jar adding the oil last. Then get your hand blender out. Put it at the bottom of the jar and slowly bring it to the top. Perfect mayo with virtually no effort. Also, it tastes much better if the vinegar is substituted for more lemon juice.
