Blender Mayonnaise

1 extra large egg or 2 yolks (for a thicker consistency)
2 ml salt
2 ml dry mustard
25 ml tarragon vinegar or lemon juice
250 ml oil
5 ml sugar
1 clove garlic, chopped
Put egg, salt, mustard, vinegar, 25 ml oil, sugar and garlic into a blender. Blend well and then, with motor running, slowly pour in remaining oil through the hole in the top. When all the oil has been added, you should have a smooth, creamy mayonnaise. For a lighter mayonnaise, stir in a little sour cream, yoghurt or buttermilk. Makes 300 ml.

French Dressing with Wine and Herbs

125 ml oil
50 ml good red wine
15 ml lemon juice
I ml salt
5 ml sugar
15 ml chopped mixed fresh herbs (sage, thyme, basil, marjoram)
50 ml chopped parsley
Put all the ingredients into a screw-top jar, shake and stand briefly before using — if left too long the fresh herbs could turn bitter. Makes 200 ml or enough for 1 very large salad.

Creamy Herbed French Dressing

125 ml each oil, dry white wine and buttermilk
5 ml honey
2 ml dried origanum
2 ml dried tarragon
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 ml celery salt
Shake all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and leave to stand for at least 1 hour before using. Use when freshly made, as it does not keep well. Makes 375 ml.
