Vegetarian Safflower Oil Mayonnaise (not vegan)

My hubby and oldest daughter love mayo and won't eat the vegan version, so this is the closest I could come to making a healthy version they would eat. Fortunately, this is delicious, easy, and they love it! I like it better than the Safflower Mayo I've been buying at Publix for $4.59, which contains extra ingredients we don't need. It only costs me me about $2.65 to make the same 12 oz jar of this. I save money by purchasing a 3-pak of Hollywood Safflower Oil for $15.91on amazon.com using the "subscribe n save" feature.
You can use organic yellow or stoneground mustard instead of brown if you like; I've used both. I prefer not to use olive oil for this recipe so I just use 1 1/2 cup safflower oil.

Devonviolet's Note:
I have been looking for a healthy "Mayo" recipe for a while now, and finally decided to try one, that I had found. It was a dismal failure. I think adding the mustard and lemon juice, at the beginning, may have caused the egg to curdle, and it never thickened. So, I tried mixing the egg and slowly drizzled oil mixture, first, and then the lemon, salt and mustard. Voila! Success! I used Brown Mustard with Horseradish, because that is what I had in the house. But, I think you could use Dijon or even yellow mustard, with excellent results. I mixed Olive Oil and Safflower Oil, because I had seen that Olive Oil, by it's self, it really strong. But, you can use any oil or combination of oils. I hope my recipe is what you are looking for, and that you enjoy it, as much as my hubby and I do.
