Lemon Mayonnaise for Steamed Artichokes

1 cup

This is a perfect dipping sauce for our Steamed Artichokes. It also makes a wonderful spread for sandwiches.


  • 1 large egg, room temperature

  • Salt

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon, plus more to taste, and zest for garnish


  1. Combine egg and a pinch of salt in the bowl of a food processor; blend until foamy and pale. Add oils, a few drops at a time, then the rest in a slow steady stream. Add lemon juice; blend briefly. Add salt and more lemon juice to taste. Refrigerate until needed. Garnish with strips of zest.
