I’m love sauces, they aren’t just great on pasta… this sauce is great on just about everything.

This would be yummy with some pasta, hot or cold, and it’s great on veggies as a dip, or salad as a dressing, and really great on chicken, and fish!

I love easy sauces that take only minutes to make.

This keeps well in the fridge for 2 weeks, it never lasts longer than that in my fridge 🙂

I love that it’s mild enough where I live to grow parsley year round, it is readily available in the grocery store in the produce section if you’re not able to grow it.

Fresh herbs make all the difference, especially in sauces!

I’m a HUGE fan of sauces and these are so yummy too…

Having some of this sauce in a jar in the fridge is so great, it tastes so fresh and delicious.

I just love the color of this sauce!

I use Meyer lemons when making the sauce, it will be tangier if you use another variety like Eureka, for example, but I’m sure delicious I just happen to love Meyer lemons and use them whenever possible.

This lemon parsley sauce is delicious over salad, drizzled over cooked vegetables like zucchini, cabbage, cauliflower, and asparagus and also delicious with fish or chicken.


I use this Immersion Blender, and I use it just about every day, smoothies, sauces, and whipped cream… yum! It whips things so quickly and easily and I’ve had smoothie bullet types of smoothie makers and they’ve broken, meanwhile, my trusty immersion blender always works and I sure like that!

  1. Hi Diane,
    This is being polite…Under instructions you meant to say “LIFT” and you said “LEFT” .Let me be your proofreader..Also, where did the minced garlic go ? LOL

    1. You can use vegetable oil, corn oil or a light tasting olive oil, your preference. I use vegetable or a light olive oil.

  2. Wow, I just LOVE this sauce, I can only imagine how yummy it is. I’m going to make it tomorrow and pour it over some shrimp and veggies.

  3. Very tasty sauce, I’ve made it twice this week already. Had it with salad, slathered on bread with my turkey sandwiches and dipped chicken meatballs into it too, thanks so much for all the great recipes.

    1. It’s good hot or cold, I typically serve it at room temp if I just made it or cold from the fridge.

  4. Hi, this recipe looks great. The only thing I am curious about is if there is something else I can put in instead of the egg yolk. Thanks

    1. I’ve read some use unsweetened soy milk instead of the egg in making mayo/aioli recipes. I haven’t tried it but it’s worth a shot. For this recipe I’d start with 1/4 cup of soy milk an see how it goes.
