garlic cloves, minced
fresh ground black pepper
- Place minced garlic on work surface and sprinkle with the salt. Using the flat side of a large knife, drag the garlic back and forth across the work surface in small circular motions until the garlic is a smooth paste.
- Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmery. Now stir in the garlic paste and cumin. Cook until it's fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove pan from heat and whisk in remaining ingredients. Move to a bowl and cool to room temperature. Whisk the sauce to recombine before serving.
- Note: if chilled, bring to room temperature before serving.
