Lemon Sauce

Salsa di Limone

There is nothing that perks up flavors like lemons but why think just a squirt will do when this easy to make velvety lemon sauce is more interesting and elegant; use it on everything from sliced fresh tomatoes and fresh asparagus,to grilled chicken, fish or pork. It is perfect on roasted brussel sprouts too! Keep a jar in the refrigerator at all times.

Makes about 1 cup


4 large lemons, peeled and segmented

1 1/4 teaspoons sugar or honey

1 teaspoon salt

Good grinding black pepper

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil


Put the lemon segments, sugar or honey salt and pepper in a food processor or blender, pulse to a coarse consistency. Pour the olive oil in and whirl until the mixture is almost smooth; leave a little texture.

Transfer the sauce to a jar and store in the refrigerator.
