Blend until you get a thick liquid sauce.

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.

Butter, which is excellent for fixing flavours in a recipe, burns if the temperature is too high. It darkens and produces unpleasant small black specks (by the way, note that the famous recipe "raie au beurre noir", ray in black butter, is a kind of sacrilege!).
