Serve sauce with crudités for cold meats. Makes about 1 cup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Press the garlic cloves through a garlic press into a medium bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Add egg yolks, one at a time, and beat until combined.
  2. Slowly drip in oil, as for mayonnaise, beating constantly. When sauce begins to thicken, stir in lemon juice or vinegar, and continue to add oil, gradually increasing to a steady trickle. Enough oil has been added when sauce becomes really thick.
  3. Add pepper; stir well.
  4. Serve.
