Cilantro Dipping Sauce

1/4 cup cilantro sprigs
2 Tbsp parsley sprigs
2 Tbsp blanched, slivered almonds
1/2 clove garlic
1/2 serrano chile pepper, seeded (wear plastic gloves when handling)
1/16 tsp salt
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp water

In a food processor, combine the cilantro, parsley, almonds, garlic, chile pepper, and salt. Process until chopped. While the processor is running, add the lime juice and oil through the feed tube, stopping the machine once or twice to scrape down the sides of the container until the sauce is smooth. Pour the sauce into a bowl. Stir in the water, cover, and chill until ready to serve.

Good as a dipping sauce for chicken tenders.
