Use oil as needed - from 1/2 cup to 1 cup Lemon juice to taste - from 2 to 3 tablespoons.

In a small bowl, using a small whisk, beat the eggs and 1/8 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, and mustard until thick and sticky. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil, a little at a time, then stir in 1 teaspoon of the lemon juice. Add the remaining oil, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating after each addition until it is absorbed. When all the oil has been absorbed, add the remaining lemon juice to taste and extra salt and pepper as necessary.
