INTERNATIONAL: SPAIN: Catalonian Sauces 8 - Mayonesa


Homemade Spanish mayonnaise simply made with olive oil, egg and a touch of lemon juice. It is used for many dishes, including ensaladilla rusa, the Spanish version of Potato Salad. It is still made fresh (with the help of a hand mixer or food processor) and poured directly into the dish being prepared.

Mayonesa was invented by the Menorcans (not the French).  Menorca is part of the Balearic islands in the Mediterranean near Catalonia aka Catalunya. Catalan and Spanish are the two official languages of Menorca aka Minorca.
