We start by pouring the olive oil into a 2-cup measuring cup. We smash the garlic on our cutting board with the back side of our knife and remove the peel. Then we mince the garlic and add it to the oil. We pour in the lemon juice and, using our immersion blender, we blend until smooth. We refrigerate until needed (at most a few days).
