“This is a wonderful healthy, tasty spread or sauce depending on how much olive oil you use. You can even use it as a rub placing under the skin of a chicken or turkey. Fresh herbs are of your choice. Spread on bread or toss into pasta adding pasta water and additional olive oil to loosen. I use a mortar and pestle or Molcajete y Tejolote [mohl-kah-HEH-teh ee teh-hoh-LOH-teh in which the grinding process releases the oils, and flavor essence of the ingredients.
