Easy-peasy Salsa Verde

July 31, 2013

Salsa verde.  Sounds fancy and complicated right?  Wrong.  Well, fancy alright but definitely not hard to make.  All it takes is a few simple ingredients (that you'll probably already have lying around the house anyway) and a spare 10 minutes of your busy day.  



2 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons of capers
2 pickled gherkins, sliced into small pieces
2 large handfuls of flat-leaf parsley
1 bunch of fresh basil
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
8 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
A few teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper


1.  Loosely chop the garlic, capers, gherkins, and herbs and put them in a food processor.
2.  Add the mustard, vinegar and olive oil.
3.  Process until it forms a thick liquid substance.
4.  Taste, and add salt and ground pepper according to your liking.

Pour over / serve with grilled or roasted meat and fish.  Gorgeous!
