  2. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice, egg yolks, dill, garlic, salt, and paprika into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  3. Select the lowest setting or the Dips and Spreads program (if available). Start the machine, slowly increase to its highest speed, and blend for 1 minute; or start the machine and allow the Dips and Spreads program to complete. If needed, remove the lid plug and insert the tamper to push ingredients into the blades. Stop the machine.
