  2. Pour avocaod oil into a sauce pan with the pepper pieces nad heat over medium heat until bubbles start to form – about 3 minutes. Be careful because this can burn easily.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat once it bubbles and allow the oil and pepper mixture to cool completely
  4. Take a large cup or large wide mouth jar and crack a room temperature egg into it
  5. Add salt, pepper, onion powder, lemon juice and vinegar to the jar
  6. Then pour in the cooled oil and pepper mixture
  7. Place an immersion blender in the jar and blend starting at the bottom and pulling up slowly until all of the oil is incorporated – the final mixture should have the consistency of a thick dressing
  8. Remove the immersion blender and stir in the dried parsley
  9. Store the dresssing in a wide mouth mason jar or squeeze bottle in the refrigerator for 7-10 days
