Mayonnaise (sometimes abbreviated to mayo in English and other languages) is a thick condiment. In France it is made primarily from vegetable oil and egg yolks.[1] Whitish-yellow in color, it is a stable emulsion formed from the oil and the yolks and is generally flavored with mustard, lemon juice or vinegar and salt whereas in Spain (and Minorca) this traditional old sauce it is made of olive oil, egg, vinegar or citron and salt, never with mustard. Numerous other sauces can be created from it by adding additional seasonings.
