Remarks

This sauce can't be kept waiting, otherwise it will loose its great green colour. If you absolutely need to keep it for a while, add a pinch vitamin C before blending.

To make a coulis instead of a sauce, replace olive oil with ice-cold water (or dry white wine), and only add the juice of half a lemon.
