3 egg yolks 1 cup canola oil 1 lemon 1 tsp cayenne pepper salt to taste
In a large bowl place three egg yolks, and mix together with a whisk. Add the canola oil slowly – almost drop by drop – while whisking. If you do not do this slowly, you will not create an emulsion. You want it to be thick with no oily residue present. Lastly, add a little lemon and cayenne pepper and salt to taste.
