  1. Put eggs, mustard, garlic, anchovies, salt, and pepper in a food processor and blend on medium/high speed for 3 minutes or until well blended.
  2. Drop the speed below medium and slowly add the oil to a thin stream. If the oil is added too quickly, it will cause the dressing to split.
  3. Add the parmesan, chopped parsley, and lemon juice and blend until combined.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning if desired. If the dressing is too thick, add 2-3 tablespoons of hot water to thin it.
  5. Serve it drizzled over your favorite salad, or use it as a dipping sauce.

    • Hi Sue,

      The bitterness is caused by using olive oil that is strongly flavored. Using a very mild olive oil will prevent this, if you dislike the flavor of olive oil, you can swap it out for macadamia oil.

    This is amazing! I really like how you don’t have to make your own mayonnaise first, that it all emulsifies together in the food processor. I did add more garlic as I love garlic. And I used 1.5 tsp anchovie paste instead of whole anchovies. I will definitely share this recipe and make it often!
