Healthy Homemade Whole-Egg Mayonnaise + 4 Different Flavor Variations (Chipotle, Cilantro Lime, Dill Pickle, Garlic Black Pepper)

I am totally a mayo kinda girl! I love it on my burgers, sandwiches, and even in my salad dressings. I have even been known to put it on my breakfast sandwiches in the morning!

What I don't like is eating mayo that is filled with all sorts of extra additives and artificial ingredients.
