Hi Julie/Lynn, Thanks for this great recipe. Unfortunately the link for Vegenaise doesn't work - it goes to:
http://followyourheart.com/products/soyfree-vegenaise
but should go to:
http://followyourheart.com/products/soy-free-3/
or
http://followyourheart.com/vegenaise-eggless-mayonnaise/
I bought the grapeseed oil version - do you still recommend it, or feel that the soy-free is better?
