What You Need

  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. extra light olive oil this is KEY
  • 1 T. lemon juice

  • 1 handful of chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 1/2 T. TLC Original House Seasoning

How to Make It

  • To a container add all ingredients except the cilantro or parsley and use a handheld immersion blender to emulsify the ingredients. You may also use a good quality traditional blender. Blend well until totally emulsified and then stir in the chopped herbs.
  • TIP: When using an immersion blender use the container that came with it and add the egg, then oil, the coconut cream, then vinegar, lemon juice, and seasonings. Stick the immersion blender at the bottom of the container, turn on, and do not move it until a lot of bubbles start to form on the top. Once this has happened you may move the blender around to make sure everything is well combined.
