Garlic Mayonnaise

Mustard Greens

  • 3/4 pound mustard greens stemmed and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper finely minced (optional)
  • ground black pepper to taste


Garlic Mayonnaise

  • Combine the egg yolks, mustard, garlic clove, cayenne and lemon juice in a food processor. (Or use a stick blender)
  • Start to process, and as the machine runs, very slowly add the oil in a thin stream through the top spout. The mayonnaise will come together and thicken all of a sudden.
  • If the mixture is too thick, add a little warm water to thin it.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • The mayonnaise will keep for about 1 week in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy with mustard greens (above), or any dish that calls for mayonnaise.

Mustard Greens

  • Rinse and dry the mustard greens.
  • Slice away the stems, fold over the leaves and cut them into bite-size pieces.
  • In a large bowl, toss the mustard greens and the minced pepper (if using) with a little of the mayonnaise, adding a little at a time and tasting as you go. The leaves should be lightly coated but not soggy with the mayonnaise.
  • Add freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
