Mayonnaise is one of those foods that will always be controversial. Some people love it and some people really hate it. We at HuffPost think mayonnaise is tragically misunderstood -- it gets a bad rap, and unfortunately for good reason. When all you know is jarred mayonnaise ruining a BLT or tuna salad sandwich, of course you hate it.

Made at home, however, mayonnaise is so glorious it can't even compare to the jarred stuff. And when mixed correctly in your food -- be it in a lobster roll or a deviled egg -- mayonnaise is great, not gross.

Making your own mayonnaise isn't difficult at all -- you can even do it without a recipe. When you make your own, however, keep in mind that it only stays good for two or three days, so you'll want to use it up as quickly as possible. For that, we are here to help you. There are so many ways to make mayonnaise shine. Here are 19 recipes that use mayonnaise correctly.
