Directions

  1. Grind the garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle (or chop the garlic finely and rub the salt into it with the flat of your chef's knife, smearing it across your cutting board several times).
  2. Place egg yolk and mustard in a bowl and whisk. Whisking vigorously, add olive oil drop by drop. Once about 1/2 cup of oil has been added, you can start pouring faster, still whisking continuously.
  3. When all the oil is incorporated, add garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  4. You can also add additional accent flavors, such as basil, fennel fronds, dill, or chopped roasted nuts.

This is good, but the predominant flavor is the olive oil. I will definitely add more garlic next time; 1/2 clove is not nearly enough. Made for My-3-Chefs, November 2009.
