This Lemon Mayonnaise spread is for a cheater–very quick and very good! Use the thickest, best, mayo in a jar you can find. The more lemon juice you put in, the thinner and tarter the mayo will become. Add the lemon juice a little at a time until the mayo has the taste and consistency you want.
1. Put the mayonnaise into a small bowl. Beat in the lemon juice one teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency and flavor. Beat in the paprika, if using. That’s it!For more zesty lemon treats check out our Lemon and Lime Recipes.
