  • 1 bunch organic flat-leaf parsley stems removed
  • 1 bunch organic basil stems removed
  • 2 anchovies I recommend European anchovies from the Adriatic Sea for sustainability
  • 1/4 cup chopped cornichons
  • 2 tablespoons wild capers
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar (you could also use red wine vinegar or ACV)
  • 3/4 cup organic extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor (I recommend this one) and pulse until smooth. If you need to add more oil, add a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  2. Serve with desired protein or veggies of choice.
Recipe Notes

You can reserve sauce in a jar in the fridge for 1 week, or freeze for a future use.

Do not cook the sauce, rather add the sauce to pre-cooked items.
