What you'll need:
1 egg, 1 tablespoon lemon juice ,1 clove garlic - crushed , 1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard, 1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil, Salt and black pepper to taste
Keep it easy with a blender...
- Mix the egg, lemon juice, garlic, and mustard in a blender
- On a low speed, drizzle the oil in slowly, making sure that each drizzle of oil is thoroughly mixed in the egg mixture before adding more.
- As you add the oil, the mixture will thicken. Season to taste with salt. If it's terribly thick, you can thin it a bit with drops of lemon juice.
- Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to two days.
Welcome to your new addiction! I added some hot sauce to add a little spice after the mixture was created. You can also add a few drops of ketchup to give it a different flavor.
Be sure to finish out the afternoon with ice cream floats. I love a good Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla and Dr. Pepper float. That right there means love.
