• 3 oz raw semi-soft goat or sheep cheese at room temperature
• 1 zucchini, peeled and chopped
• 1 garlic, minced
• 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
• 1 tbsp of chives, tarragon, oregano or thyme
• 1 lemon, zest & juice
• s/p to taste
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Thin out with water or more lemon to make it zestier. You can use raw goat milk or a yogurt if you have on hand. Go for a rustic but still easy to flow kind of sauce. Just like a Caesar Salad, eat it with romaine, cherry tomatoes, add more grated raw goat if you like or more lemon, be generous with the cracked black pepper; it stands up to it!
Alternatively, you can keep the sauce thick and use it as a sauce for crudite; carrots, cucumber, zucchini, celery, etc. Or roast vegetables; asparagus, cauliflower, red bell peppers, radicchio and serve the sauce on the side.
Seriously, I’ve witnessed as a whole room when silent when I severed this creamy herby sauce drizzled on top of a whole branzino or a filet of cod that had been roasted with lemon and sliced red onions. I love it when I get comments like, “I’m allowed to eat that?” OH YEAH YOU CAN!
