1/3cupolive oil(use the good stuff here, you’ll appreciate it in the long run)
1/2teaspoonfreshly ground white pepper
1teaspoonfreshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4teaspoonfreshly grated lemon zest
Combine vegetable oil and olive oil in a measuring cup with an easily pourable spout.
Combine the egg yolk, water, salt, pepper, lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic in a large bowl. Whisk until they are well combined and let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk again for another minute.
While whisking the egg and flavorants, add a few drops of oil to get the emulsion setup. Add a few more drops, and then a few more, all the while keep beating. Once you’ve got a good emulsion going, slowly drizzle in the remaining oil while whisking constantly. The finished product should be thick enough to cling to your tasting spoon.
