Mix up the first teaspoon of salt with 2
tablespoons of vinegar and the dry mustard and put aside.
a mixer (on a high setting), blend egg yolks separately for about a minute to
get them started. Very slowly add your oil (I prefer the grape seed oil). You
have to start adding the oil just a few drops at a time for at least one cup.

flavor, but keeps the dressing from separating and helps preserve it. Normally,
homemade mayo will last only five days in your fridge. The lemon will help it
keep for up to a month, though I've never seen it stick around that long.
