Infused Herb Oil

Herb oils are a beautiful, tasty, and incredibly easy condiment or garnish. Here’s an explanation of the basic technique.

How to Make Herb Oils:

Ingredients:
1 cup olive oil
Fresh herbs (for example, a ½ bunch of fresh flat leaf parsley)
1 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Portuguese Sea Salt to taste

Directions:

1. Thoroughly wash the herbs. Shake off residual water, but you don’t need to hand-dry them or run them through a salad spinner if you don’t want to.

2. If the variety of herbs you’re using have woody stems, remove the stems and discard them.

3. Chop the herbs with the lemon juice in a food processor.

4. Drizzle in the olive oil while the processor is running, then add salt to taste.

5. Use to dress salads, garnish plates, or sauce food.

  1. Great idea! I often take my pesto and thin it with extra oil to make a drizzle or dressing. I never thought of skipping the “make pesto” step!
