This mayonnaise tastes the same as basic unflavored mayonnaise—only the color is different. Stir 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) chlorophyll) into 1 cup (250 milliliters) mayonnaise. It may be necessary to add more chlorophyll, but it is best to start with a small amount; surprisingly little is needed. Don’t add the chlorophyll until you’re almost ready to serve the mayonnaise or the acidity may cause it to turn gray.
