- 2 large egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, tarragon, or chives
Place egg yolks in a food processor. (To avoid using raw eggs, substitute yolks from pasteurized eggs.)
Add mustard and lemon juice. Pulse ingredients until well combined.
With motor running, add oil in a slow, steady stream (mixture should become thick and emulsified). Stir in chopped herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
Refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.
