This sauce is rather self-explanatory. By definition it is fresh and works wonders for kebabs or anytime you’d like to put a Mediterranean spin on a dish. Parsley and mint freshen the breath, aid digestion, and can even inhibit tumor growth.


MAKES: 4 to 6 Servings
PREP/COOK TIME: 10 minutes

  • 1 cup tightly packed fresh parsley leaves

  • ½ cup tightly packed fresh mint leaves

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt 1 teaspoon Grade B maple syrup

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until well blended. For a thinner drizzle, and another tablespoon of water and briefly process again. Do a FASS check; you may want to add a pinch of salt. Variation: For a Latin or Asian flavor, substitute cilantro for the parsley.

Storage Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
