  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups whipped cream
  • 2 teaspoons toasted ground coriander

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolk, lemon juice, mustard, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Whisking constantly, drizzle in the oil, starting with one drop at a time.
