Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- Zest of one large lemon*
- 1 lg. or 2 sm. cloves garlic; crushed
- 2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
Thoroughly combine all in ingredients in a small bowl, cover with plastic, and refrigerate for an hour.
*Note: Lemon zest is the outer yellow peel of a lemon. When zesting a lemon, be careful not to include any of the white pith below the skin because it's bitter. You can use a vegetable peeler to cut strips of peel and then finely chop them, but the best tool for the job is a Microplane grater.
