2 cups loose-packed fresh parsley
1 cup loose-packed cilantro leaves
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 medium onion, chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeds and ribs removed
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine or sherry wine vinegar

In a food processor fitted with the metal blade or blender, process or puree all ingredients until smooth.
I love this sauce spooned on just about anything, including Moros Y Cristianos (recipe given), rice, pasta, grilled vegetables or tofu.
