Here’s one of our favorites:
• 2 cloves garlic
• 2 anchovy filets packed in oil and drained
• 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
• Pinch of kosher salt
• 1/2 seeded, finely chopped lemon (including peel)
• 1/4 cup (loosely packed) fresh oregano leaves
• 1/4 cup good olive oil
Place all ingredients, except olive oil in a mini-food processor. Pulse a few times to coarsely chop. Add the olive oil (slowly as the processor runs if your processor allows this. If not, just add it all at once.) Process until a coarse puree forms. Season with more salt and fresh lemon juice if desired.
