This is just a little mixture that takes minutes and lasts for days in a jar on the counter. I use it to drizzle on grilled vegetables, chicken, steaks, pork, or lamb chops.
I have a little herb garden. It's planted in various pots and sits on an old wire glider on my back deck. My father "found" the glider on someone's curb and I really don't trust it to hold anyone. So, herb garden it has become.
The "sauce" is simple.
Pour about 1/4 of a cup of a good fruity olive oil into a small jar. (I use a jelly jar). Squeeze the juice of one lemon into the olive oil. Press garlic into the oil and juice. I usually press two cloves, but the amount is up to your taste. A nice pinch of coarse Kosher salt and a quick grind of pepper. Then chop up several of your fresh herbs. (I used, on this particular day: chives, garlic chives, thyme, lemon thyme, flat parsley). Drop the lightly chopped herbs into the jar.
Put on the lid and shake.
And that's it. When the steaks (or chops or chicken cutlets) are done, drizzle lightly. Likewise with the grilled vegetables. Just a little bit makes a huge difference!
