1 pound fresh garlic, peeled
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup olive oil

Combine garlic, salt, and lemon juice in a blender and purée. With blender running, slowly add olive oil so it emulsifies. Should have the consistency of mayonnaise.

Serve with salmon or other fish, shrimp, chicken, or use as a salad dressing or sandwich spread. For salad dressing, you can add a little oregano.
