Preparation method

  • Ensure that all the ingredients are at room temperature.

  • Next, add the oil in a thin stream, continuing to whisk or mix slowly. Do not beat!
  • Season with lemon juice and a little vinegar, if you wish.
  • Crush the garlic cloves with a garlic press.
  • Add to the mayonnaise together with the chopped parsley and mix.
