Mayonnaise Dressing


  • yolk of 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup salad oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


Beat the egg yolk; add the seasonings; add oil, a few drops at a time, until mixture thickens; mix vinegar and lemon juice, and add in small quantities, alternating with the oil; as the oil thickens the dressing, dilute with the acid, leaving the finished dressing thick. It is important to have ingredients and utensils cold.
