4 large egg yolks

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 

2 cups vegetable oil 

Juice of 2 lemons 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

Pinch freshly ground black pepper 


  1. Add egg yolks and mustard to a bowl and whisk to combine. Blend in a circular motion with an immersion blender and slowly add the oil, taking care for the first 30 seconds to avoid splitting.
  2. Add the rest of the oil until you have a thick, glossy mayonnaise. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper, then blend a little more and serve.
