Homemade Mayonnaise

One of the best and easiest ways to make any potato salad "heart healthy" is to make your own mayonnaise. You get the heart benefits of extra-virgin olive oil and skip the harmful vegetable oils used in most commercial mayonnaise. Using an organic egg in this recipe will also increase the omega-3 content of your food.

Mayonnaise Shopping Tip

Instead of reaching for the same off the shelf, pre-made dips and sauces from your local grocery stores, try something different and make something fresh with bold flavors to liven up your meal.

Mayonnaise Cooking Tip

Spices and herbs can be a cook's best friend. Don’t be afraid to add something unfamiliar to dips and sauce. They just might be the extra flavor that is needed to brighten up the dish.
