A classic garnish from Italy, indispensable for many dishes such as Osso Bucco. Three simple ingredients which together transform these dishes into a mouthful of flavors and take only a few minutes to make.

I like to add extra virgin olive oil to it. It mellows the impact of the garlic while
making it more spreadable if you decide to use on fish or grilled chicken.


  • 2 organic lemons, washed
  • 1 cup loosely packed Italian parsley leaves, washed
  • 5 garlic cloves or to taste
  • ¼ cup olive oil (optional)


Grate the lemon rind and set aside in a small bowl. Finely chop the parsley. You should end up with approximately ½ cup of parsley. Add it to the lemon rind. Finely chop garlic and add it to the bowl. Mix all and use it right away or store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 day.
