  • 1 pack flat-leaf parsley , roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove , crushed
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put all of the ingredients except the oil in a small food processor and blitz until very finely chopped.  Alternatively, chop up all the herbs and garlic with a knife then stir in the vinegar.  Add the oil, stir and season well with salt and pepper.
