  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup oil peanut or corn
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons lemon juice


  • Place everything but the oil and lemon juice in the blender or processor container. 
  • Process 5 seconds in the blender; 15 seconds in the processor. 
  • With the motor running, add the oil, first in a drizzle, then in a thin, steady stream. 
  • When all the oil has been added, stop the motor and taste.
  • Add lemon juice to your taste. If the sauce is too thick, thin with hot water or lemon juice.
  • If too thin, process a little longer.
