Lemon and Herb Oil
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup fresh parsley, loosely packed
3/4 cup fresh basil, loosely packed
1/2 cup fresh chives
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1 tbsp lemon zest (about 1 lemon)
1 tsp salt, or more to taste
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Place all ingredients into a blender, or food processor, and blend on low for 30 seconds – 1 minute. You want the mixture to be somewhat chunky, not smooth. You can use an immersion blender, but you will need to chop the herbs a bit first.
Serve over grilled artichokes, pasta or meat - the possibilities are endless!
