Gremolata is such a simple Italian recipe with only three ingredients. However, it adds so much freshness and snap to so many dishes. Its normally associated with Osso Buco but I have used it with Lasagna. It can be used as a topping and garnish. Either one works and adds a lovely additional flavour. The original recipe includes anchovies which can be added and is used as more of a seasoning than an ingredient. I often make this in advance and store it in an air tight container in the fridge. It will be perfect for about a week. You can also freeze it in smaller portions.
- Combine all ingredients in a small mound on a cutting board and chop finely.
- Alternately, the ingredients may be combined in an electric food processor and chopped finely.
