I have been getting some requests for healthy recipes so here is a very versatile condiment that can be used as a salad dressing, marinade, hot sauce, cold sauce, accompaniment or whatever you want.  It works well with fish, meat chicken, lamb, potatoes, pretty much everything.

This is an olive oil based recipe and olive oil is a mono unsaturated fat which is healthier than saturated fats so this is good to eat.  It will keep for about a week or more in the refrigerator.
