Cuisine French


  • 1 Shallot finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon capers smashed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley and/or thyme
  • 1 cup vegetable oil like sunflower or grapeseed


  • Add your ingredients to a blender except for the oil and whizz together until you have a smooth consistency.
  • Keep a cup of ice or cold water nearby to adjust the consistency and so the dressing doesn't overheat and break (separate)
  • Slowly add the oil to the vortex of the dressing until it begins to close up. At that point add a touch of water or a small ice cube to adjust temp and/or consistency.
  • Blend until smooth and at the desired consistency.
