“Basic recipe from my Maman. Very easy to improvise with, using the ingredients you have at hand. I often substitute or combine nuts depending on what I have. Also usually substitute or add wine for much of the olive oil. Have added or subbed up to 1 C fresh spinach leaves for basil at times. Can be made using sharp knife and a lot of chopping or all in blender/food processor, depending on the texture you want.”

  3. Repeat w/garlic and combine all ingredients.
  4. Pour olive oil/wine/liquid over the top and mix well.
