What oil do you use for homemade mayo?

Bakeat350 | Dec 31, 201403:40 PM     18

I just saw this reminder that I can make my own mayo and I have a regular supply of random egg yolks since my husband likes his omelet with one whole egg and one white. http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-...

It wasn't hard to make the mayo in a wide mouth jar even tho with only a single yolk I had to get my own emulsion started with a table fork until I had it deep enough for the stick blender.

I was all ready for a taste treat but the olive oil I used was too heavy. It was nice extra virgin stuff but it spoiled the mayo. Who's got a rec for a neutral or a flavorful oil that will taste like mayo and not olives? I've got canola and walnut oil on hand. I'm willing to go buy something that will deliver the flavor excitement I was anticipating. I mean if this is to be an ongoing operation it should be something to look forward to.
