This sauce got invented to accompany some awesome beef & lamb kofta (meat on a stick) that I made recently. All I can tell you is to hold onto your hat because it packs a wallop of flavor…the brightness of the lemon, the freshness of the herbs and a bit of texture from the pistachios are perfect. I’m typing this and my mouth is literally watering just thinking about it.

How to Make Lemony Herb Sauce

To make this sauce, you’ll combine fresh parsley and mint with pistachios and lemon juice. Then, you’ll whisk in olive oil to finish it off. It couldn’t be much simpler. For maximum freshness, use this sauce within two days.

This Lemony Herb Sauce packs a wallop of flavor. Brightness of the lemon, freshness from herbs and texture from the pistachios are perfect.


  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint
  • 1/4 cup pistachio nuts chopped
  • 1 cup lemon juice about 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt


  1. Chop the parsley, mint and pistachios. Combine in a small bowl with the sea salt.
  2. Squeeze the juice from one lemon (~1/4 cup) into the bowl, being careful to catch the seeds. I squeeze the lemon into my cupped hand, letting the juice strain through my fingers.
  3. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and whisk at the same time.
  4. Serve with meat or veggies of your choice. Will keep refrigerated for 1-2 days but is best used fresh because of the herbs.
