You will need
2 egg yolks
1 level teaspoon salt
about 1 dessertspoon lemon juice
about 1/4 pin (U.S. 5/8 cup) olive oil
All ingredients for mayonnaise should be at room temperature.

Carefully separate the egg yolks and put into a small basin standing on a non-slip surface. Add the salt and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and mix thoroughly with a small wooden spoon or wire whisk. Start adding the oil drop by drop stirring vigorously all the time. As soon as the sauce begins to thicken increase the flow of oil to several drops at a time and finally thin thread, stirring continuously. If the sauce becomes too thick add a few drops of lemon juice or water. The final sauce should be thick and shiny.
