  • 3 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2-5 cloves Garlic, sliced
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt, & more to taste
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1/2 cup Safflower Oil


  1. Combine all ingredients except oil in the food processor.

  2. Process for about 15 seconds (sauce should be slightly chunky before adding the oil).
