Author Notes: I can't rave about this sauce enough. Fresh, zesty, herby, verdant and fabulous. It goes perfectly with roast or grilled chicken and I wouldn't have a barbeque without it, be that meat or fish. Superb with lamb (in which case add some mint along with the parsley for a modern twist on mint sauce). Spread it in a sandwich or on toast under chopped tomatoes for a wicked bruschetta. Any left over works brilliantly as a marinade. Have I persuaded you yet?Anna May

Serves 4

  • 1 bunch Parsley (approx 30-40 grams)
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch dried chilli flakes (optional)
  1. Put all the ingredients into a jug and blend with a hand held blender. Alternatively blend in a liquidizer. Taste and adjust, you made need a splash more vinegar or pinch of sugar or salt.
