  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup light olive oil


  • It is very important that your egg is at room temperature. Place in a bowl of hot water to short cut this step.
  • Put egg and lemon juice in food processor with mustard and salt.
  • Turn machine on and pour the 1/4 cup olive oil down the feed tube. Process for 1 minute.
  • Now, slowly drizzle in the remaining 1 cup olive oil, pouring it down the feed tube in a very thin stream. At first it will splatter around but just keep drizzling and soon it will smooth out.
  • Keep drizzling, and drizzling, about 4 minutes.
  • When it is all incorporated run machine for another 30 seconds. Makes about 1 1/4 cups
