This is a simple and fresh salsa topping that goes great over anything grilled, particularly grilled fish and grilled chicken.  Think of it as a Greek salsa without tomatoes.   

The ingredients are simple:  Onions, fresh parsley, oregano, (check this useful blog about oregano), salt, and pepper.

Such a simple and fresh salsa. Typically, you will see things garnished with parsley, salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil, and lemon. I have added onions and combined this into a salsa that you can add on grilled meats, particularly fish.

This recipe is enough for 3-4 people, so you can easily double. You can make this about 1 hour ahead. You really want this to be as fresh as possible. Otherwise, the lemon juice will wilt the parsley. Try to use flat-leaf parsley. Do not use curly parsley or dried parsley flakes.
