Step 1

Place peeled garlic cloves and salt into the Vitamix container and start the machine on variable 4, gradually increasing the speed to 7 until it cannot blend further.

Step 2

Use the tamper to push the ingredients towards the blade, or stop and scrape down the sides every 30 seconds. Add 2 tbsp. chilled water in between and blend.

Step 3

When the garlic has reached finely ground state, start pouring 1/2 cup of oil in a thin stream through the lid opening, while the machine is running at medium speed.

Step 4

Once this is incorporated slowly add 2 tsp of the lemon juice, in the same way.

Step 5

Repeat this process of slowly adding oil and lemon juice in very slow, steady stream and stopping occasionally to scrape down the container until you have used up the ingredients.

Step 6

The mixture will turn thick, creamy and white like mayo. (if it is still watery keep on blending)

Step 7

Transfer sauce to a container with tight fitting lid. Refrigerate for few hours before using.

Step 8

It's good for up to 1-2 months.
