  • 1 bunch Italian parsley, leaves only
  • 1 bunch mint, leaves only
  • 1 bunch basil, leaves only
  • 2 cups capers, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoon salt-packed anchovy fillets, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 clove garlic
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Cooking Directions

    In the bowl of a food processor, combine the herbs, capers, anchovies, mustard, salt, sugar and garlic and pulse to form a coarse puree. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, pulsing after each addition to form a relatively smooth puree that still has some personality. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Can be kept, refrigerated, for up to one week.
