  • 1 cup lightly packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 2-5 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients
  3. Add your herb mixture to your oil mixture and combine.
  4. Serve or refrigerate up to two days.

Notes

  • A food processor makes quick work of fresh herbs.
  • Whisking in the olive oil by hand prevents the bitterness of oxidation.
  • Red wine vinegar keeps the sauce tangy and bright.
