  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and pounded to a paste with a pinch of coarse salt
  • Small pinch of cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon tender young savory leaves, finely chopped, or a pinch of crumbled dry savory leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Note: This recipe is adapted from "Lulu's Provencal Table" by Richard Olney.
