5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Grated zest and juice of 2 lemons
1 cup chopped basil leaves
1 cup chopped cilantro leaves

Combine the garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir in the cilantro, basil and parsley, then add the olive oil. Stir until well blended. Add the salt and pepper, stir to blend, then taste the sauce. Add more salt if desired. Yields about one cup.
