Cover with plastic overhang and place 3- to 4-pound weight (such as another loaf pan filled with canned goods) on top. Chill 24 hours.

Make Fresh Herb Sauce: In food processor or blender, combine basil, parsley, garlic, vinegar, oil, 2 tablespoons water and salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth.

To serve, remove weight, invert terrine onto cutting board, and discard plastic wrap. Cut terrine into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Pour a little basil sauce onto serving plates, tilting to spread sauce. Arrange terrine slices on sauce.
