I just bought that Weston Price cookbook, Nourishing Traditions, the other day. There are a bunch of mayo recipes with olive oil, but they said it's okay to substitute expeller-pressed sunflower oil, or do some kind of combination.
The basic recipe is 1 whole egg, 1 egg yolk, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1.5 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp whey (optional), 3/4-1 cup oil and a generous pinch of sea salt. You just blend everything except the oil in your food processor and add the oil drop by drop with the motor running. Then you can add more salt or lemon juice or whatever it needs to get it how you like it.
