Ingredients
  Egg yolks 2
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Mustard powder 1 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper To Taste
  Sugar 1 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sunflower oil 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Wine vinegar 3 Tablespoon
Directions

Put the egg yolks, salt, mustard, pepper and sugar into a blender or food processor.
Blend together.
With the motor running, slowly add the oils, in a very thin trickle.
As the mayonnaise thickens, add the oil in a slightly faster trickle, until it is all used up.
Add 2 tablespoons of the vinegar, then taste and add more if you like.
Keep in a covered bowl in the refrigerator.
To this basic recipe you can add tomato paste, finely chopped garlic, finely chopped mixed fresh herbs, grated lemon or lime rind, or pureed avocado.
