With a vegetable peeler, remove the zest of the lemon, being very careful not to include any of the bitter white pith. Put lemon peel into the blender jar.

Juice the peeled lemon. Add juice to the blender along with the remaining ingredients, in the order listed. Secure lid.

Select High and blend until fully mixed and emulsified, about 1 minute.

Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. If not using right away, store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
