  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice


  1. Peel and chop the garlic. Chop the garlic very finely. Alternatively, you may smash the garlic into a paste using a small mortar and pestle. It will be easier if you have a garlic press.
  2. Crack the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites and into a bowl. Add ½ tsp of salt and the garlic.
  3. To blend, whisk using hand mixer on low speed. With your other hand slowly pour the olive oil in a very stream into the bowl. Whisk constantly, you must not stop while you are pouring the oil. Otherwise, the emulsion will split.
  4. Whisk until the sauce is creamy. Add the fresh lemon juice slowly and continue whisking to keep the sauce smooth.
  5. Taste the sauce. If desired, add more salt or garlic.
  6. To serve, transfer the sauce to a bowl or pour it over potatoes.
