Start to add your oils bit by bit in a steady stream.
Once you’ve blended in a quarter of the oil, you can start to add the rest in larger amounts.
When the mixture thickens, add lemon juice.
When all the oil has gone in, add the garlic and any flavours like basil, smoked paprika or lemon zest for extra zing.
Season to taste with salt, pepper and a bit more lemon juice, if needed.
