1/2 packed cup fresh basil leaves

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 packed cup fresh mint

2 tablespoons chopped fresh marjoram

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon anchovy paste

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, smashed

Juice from 1 large lemon (about 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice)

1/2 small red onion, roughly chopped

Veal Chops:

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Four 8-ounce 3/4-inch-thick bone-in veal rib chops

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. For the dressing: Place the basil, oil, mint, marjoram, vinegar, anchovy paste, rosemary, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice and onion in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until chunky. Let the mixture stand for 20 minutes.
  2. For the veal chops: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chops with the salt and pepper. Cook to medium rare, 10 to 12 minutes, turning the chops over halfway through the cooking time. Let the chops rest for 5 minutes. 
  3. Spoon the dressing on top of the chops and serve.
