  • 1/2 cup salt-packed capers, soaked in water for 30 minutes, rinsed and dried
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt, pepper

Step 1Wash parsley, basil and mint leaves and spin dry in a salad spinner.

Step 2In the bowl of a food processor, combine the parsley, basil, mint, anchovies, capers, mustard, garlic and red pepper flakes.
