2 cloves garlic, crushed in a mortar and pestle with ½ teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites or 1 large egg
1 cup (250 ml) oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cold water


1.  Crush the garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle until it forms
     a smooth paste.

2.  Whisk together the garlic paste and egg until well blended.

3.  Add the oil, drop-by-drop, while whisking (after you’ve added
     1 tablespoon of oil drop-by-drop, you can add the oil a little
     faster). Make sure the oil you add is fully incorporated before
     adding any more.

4.  Once you’ve added ½ cup (125 ml) oil, alternate between
     gradually adding the oil and lemon juice and continue mixing 
     until fully incorporated.

  • 5.  Add the cold water and mix until smooth and creamy.
