Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Sauce
Serves: 6
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ c. hot water
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1½ c. fresh parsley
  • ½ c. fresh cilantro
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, peeled & chopped (this depends on how garlicky you like it. I used 6)
  • 1 Tb. lemon juice
  • ¼ c. red wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ c. olive oil
  1. In a small bowl, combine water with oregano and salt and allow to sit for about 5 minutes (this brightens the flavor of the oregano).
  2. In a food processor, toss in parsley, cilantro, scallions, garlic and red pepper flakes and pulse a few times until roughly chopped.
  3. Pour in oregano/water mixture, along with vinegar and lemon juice and pulse a few times.
  4. Pour mixture into a medium bowl.
  5. Gently whisk in olive oil until you get an emulsion (i.e., thicker consistency).
  6. Cover and allow to stand at room temperature for about 1 hour, then spoon over grilled meat.
If you refrigerate the mixture, allow it to come to room temperature before serving.
