  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 cup (40 grams) finely chopped mixed fresh flat-leaf parsley, cilantro/fresh coriander, mint and/or basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 small anchovies, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup (240 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
