homemade MAYONNAISE - how to make it taste better?

first off, i'm assuming the answer is in the oil....

anyway, i used one egg yolk, teaspoon of dijon, pinch of salt and a little lemon juice for starters....added 3/4 cup of oil, a blend of maybe a half cup canola and 1/4 olive oil. everything emulsified fine, the mayo looked great....my recipe actually called for peanut oil, but i didnt have and i often buy "spectrum" brand canola oil, so thought this would work ok. after the 3/4 cup emulsfied, added 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a aboiut the same lemon juice and more salt. but it all still tastes like oil. tastes good, but when i compare it to my stuff in a jar its pretty harsh. i used whole foods 365 brand canola and bionaturae organic EVOO....any suggestions on things to add? was penut oil the way to go to start it out? or is homemade stuff really supposed to taste like oil?

how can i make it taste better?
