Yield: Makes about 2 cups


This is the condiment version of those summer sandals you want to wear with everything.


2 lemons

2 serrano chiles

2 garlic cloves, crushed

3 cups chopped parsley

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

½ cup tahini

Kosher salt


Finely grate zest of 1 lemon into a blender. Cut both lemons in half and tease out seeds. Squeeze juice into blender; you should have around ½ cup. Add chiles, garlic, parsley, oil, and ⅓ cup cold water and blend on high speed until smooth and very green.

Pour mixture into a medium bowl, add tahini, and whisk until fully incorporated; season sauce generously with salt.

Do Ahead: Sauce can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and chill.
