To make this interesting variation, you can try two different methods: Add 1/2 to 1 Tsp. anchovy paste to 1/2 cup mayonnaise. Or, using one 2 oz. can of anchovies, mix the oil from the can into 1 cup of mayonnaise, then add anchovies, finely minced.
To make this special sauce, add 1 Tsp curry powder to one-cup homemade mayonnaise. Or you can add a mixture of 1/4 Tsp. turmeric, 1/4 Tsp. corrainder and 1 Tsp. cumin to 1 Cup mayonnaise.
Add tarragon leaves, fresh thyme, dill, chervil or finely minced parsley or basil leaves to mayonnaise. A combination of several herbs might be very nice.
