I saw a mayo in the store made with sunflower seed oil, which creeps me out less than canola or soy oils. Maybe you could find that one... it was in the "natural foods" section with all the organic stuff. I can't remember the brand.

the "olive oil" mayo many brands have out now still contain vegetable oils.
I was going to mention that. It bugs the hell out of me. Its like, canola mayo with a bit of olive in it :P. Spectrum, you dirty dirty liar.
I make my own with a little food processor and the dips in the top have a little air hole, which I pour the oil into and it drizzles it for me. However, it tastes WAY too lemony and is never great tasting and makes me sad to eat. I'm going to try with rosemary-avocado oil and vinegar next time.
Stabby, I do not eat canola oil. However, I don't understand it and avoid it because I feel that I should, in all the primal hullaballoo, so please give input into if-its-ever-good and the oft claimed 'omega-3s' and expeller-pressed etc.
Since going primal, I just haven't been using mayo much. Mustard is the one condiment that I still use frequently. For some reason it's the one thing that hasn't been loaded up with HFCS and vegetable oil. I probably should have typed that in though, they'll probably reformulate now just to help everyone meet they're daily quota of vitamin S.
My mother fixed some season burgers on the 4th. One of the things that she set out was my old favorite BBQ sauce and was surprised when I didn't use any of it. These days, considering that HFCS was the second ingredient, it just doesn't have the same appeal that it used to.
