½ cup fresh or dry herbs (dill, oregano, rosemary or basil)
1 lemon or lime
Vinegar or apple cider vinegar (optional), recommended if preparing a large batch and storing for a long period
Green or red chillies (optional)

If using dry herbs, blend and add to the mixture.
If using fresh herbs, chopped very finely and add to the mixture just before serving.
