Make the mayonnaise by placing the egg yolk, gherkin vinegar (1 tsp) and lemon juice (1 tsp) into a bowl and beat for about 10 seconds with an electric mixer to combine.
Gradually add the oil (50ml vegetable oil and 50ml rapeseed oil) about 1 tbsp at a time. Beat on a high speed after each addition until the oil is fully combined and the mayonnaise mixture looks thick and the beaters leave a trail.
Keep adding the oil and beating until it is all combined.
Finely chop the gherkins (50g), capers (20g) and parsley (1 tbsp) and add to the mayonnaise. Add the english mustard (½ tsp). Stir.
Season with salt and serve.
