  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½  shallot, diced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup OJ
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp stone ground mustard
  • Vegetable oil

With a handheld immersion blender, or regular blender, add all ingredients except oil. Blend until everything is combined and shallot is not in chunks.

With blender running, slowly add vegetable oil, approximately 1 – 2 cups, until a dressing consistency.
