Cilantro and Parsley Herb Vinaigrette

Cooking Method ,
Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 10 mins
Servings 1
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro
  • 1 Bunch Parsley
  • 1/2 Medium Red Onion
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (up to 1 tsp if you want it spicier)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons White Vinegar
  1. Remove and discard the thicker stems from the cilantro and parsley, reserving only the leaves and tender stems.
  2. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the oil and vinegar.
  3. Pulse a couple times to start breaking everything down.
  4. Add in the vinegar and oil, then blend until everything is finely processed and combined. Maybe a minute or two depending how tender your herbs were or weren’t.
  5. That’s it! Taste it and see if you want a little more salt or vinegar. If it’s too think then add a bit more oil until it is to your liking.
  6. Enjoy!
This is hardly a recipe, more like a rough guide of ingredients that when blended up together make a pretty fantastic dressing/dip/marinade…so go ahead and sub in some extra cilantro, or basil if that's what you have, most leafy green herbs will be great in this. Try this mixed up with some yogurt for a tangy dip that pairs perfectly with some veggies or Baked Pita Chips Baked Pita Chips and Dip
