  • cup (90ml) olive oil
  • cup (30ml) red wine vinegar or white balsamic/red wine vinegar
  • 1 shallot or onion
  • 1 clove garlic add more for extra garlic taste
  • ¼ cup flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper
  • crushed red pepper flakes optional if you like it spicy


  • Chop the shallot, garlic, and parsley very thin.
  • Mix all ingredients, season with salt and pepper, and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • Second option: Add all ingredients into a food processor and pulse a few times until you have a sauce with little chunky pieces (you don't want it super smooth unless you like it that way).


  • It’s best if the sauce can sit for 30 minutes (room temperature or fridge) to develop its full flavor. Skip this step if you are in a hurry.
  • Store the sauce for up to 3 days in your fridge.
