Marelie’s comments about this recipe:

Mayonnaise in English, Majonnäs in Sweden, Mayonesa in Spain or μαγιονέζα in Greece, is one of the most loved spreads, dips or mixing agents for fillings around the world! Home-made mayonnaise is first class, but some store-bought versions made with real eggs and olive oil is a convenient replacement.

Making this strawberry mayonnaise was such a delight, seeing the red of the strawberries tinting the mayonnaise a light pink. Adding cold-pressed ginger root extract increased the nutritional value and simultaneously adding a twist to the flavour of this going-to-be dip or salad dressing.

Enjoy it with a nartjie, red onion, pomegranate and rocket salad!
