Ingredients: 

2 cups fresh parsley, chopped fine

2 Tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped fine

2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped fine

4 garlic cloves, minced or crushed

6 ounces (3/4 cup) olive oil

2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

sea salt and black pepper to taste  

Procedure:  

mix all ingredients together. Let sit for flavors to marry, at least one hour before serving. 

This is a classic accompaniment to grilled steak. It is also delicious with grilled chicken, seafood, or lamb. It makes a wonderful marinade too.

Marinate shrimp, chicken, or lamb, and then grill or sauté. Brush on zucchini, peppers and onions and grill.

Use as a sauce for cooked vegetables or stir a spoonful into tuna salad or chicken salad for an added kick. It is incredibly versatile and will last refrigerated for several days.
