Make your own tangy Italian mayonnaise at home.


    1 egg

    1 tbsp. lemon juice

    1/4 tsp. sea salt

    3/4 c. extra virgin olive oil

    1/4 tsp. white pepper


Break the whole egg into the blender. Add the lemon juice, salt, white pepper, and 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Blend until the mixture is thick, light colored, and uniform. Keep the blender going and pour the rest of the olive oil in a slow, steady trickle into the vortex of the mixture. Stop pouring only if a small bubble of oil forms in the center, blend without adding any more oil until the bubble disappears. Resume pouring in the remaining oil, in a steady trickle as before. Blend a moment more, and use as you will.
