 Have you tried making tuna salad with homemade mayonnaise? You can vary the
flavoring in the mayonnaise to suit your taste. Try your next batch with this:
Put the yolks, 1 Tablespoon oil, lemon juice, slt, pepper and mustard into the
bowl of a processor and process until an emulsion begins to form. Then, with the
machine still running, begin to add the rest of the oil, almost drop by drop,
until i'ts all incorporated and you have a thick mayonnaise.
 Mash up the red peppers until very fine and stir into the mayonnaise until it’s
completely incorporated.
 Taste and adjust seasoning to your own personal liking. Add to your tuna salad,
along with some finely chopped scallions or shallots and perhaps some finely
chopped celery. If you like curry in your tuna salad, this can be added instead
of the red peppers, but add it at the same time you put the first ingredients
into the processor.
