This addictive recipe by Gayle Pirie and John Clark of San Francisco's Foreign Cinema is integral to their Scrambled Eggs with Meyer Lemon Salsa Verde. But it makes enough that you'll have some left over for grilled bread, steaks, or sardines; roast chicken or vegetables; or sandwiches.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine shallot, vinegar, and salt in a medium bowl and let stand 10 minutes to soften and lightly pickle shallot. Meanwhile, thinly slice lemon with a handheld slicer, removing seeds; stack, cut in half, then cut into very small triangles.

Step 2

Stir lemon, parsley, and capers into bowl with shallot mixture. Add oil and stir to combine. Let stand 30 minutes.

Step 3

Make ahead: Up to 5 days, chilled airtight (color will fade).
