  • 1 cup vegetable oil (like olive, rapeseed, canola or mixed)
  • 1 medium or large egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice or lime (or vinegar)
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or more)


  • Place oil, egg, lemon juice or vinegar and salt in a jar.
  • Using stab mixer, blend until the mixture turns creamy and white.
  • Use fresh or seal jar and refrigerate for future use.


If using only olive oil, use the extra light tasting one or mix it with other oils like canola, vegetable or rapeseed oil so the taste will not be too intense.
Can also be done using blender. Can be kept refrigerated for a couple of days.
