DIRECTIONS

  • Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until lightly browned and subtley fragrant. Watch pan carefully because sesame seeds burn easily.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Once cooled, place sesame seeds in a blender or food processor and blend until coarsely ground, about 30 seconds total.
  • Add the cilantro, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Blend mixture using the pulse button setting.
  • With machine running, {{gradually}} add the olive oil in a steady, slow stream and process mixture until smooth.
  • Store in covered container in refrigerator. Use up within 1 month. Bring to room temperature before serving.
