  • Place the garlic and salt in the food processor. Pulse in short amounts. Occasionally scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure all the garlic is pureed.
  • Add half the lemon juice, and blend until a paste forms. Add more lemon juice, process until smooth.
  • While the food processor is running, drizzle in 1 cup of oil, in one continuous thin stream. Then, slowly pour in about a tablespoon of lemon juice.
