We're putting this up due to a few requests for the recipe from former Cook Eat Discover guests who we prepared it for in Tuscany. Vivid green and delicious with meats, fish and vegetables, Salsa Verde is the condiment you've been missing in your life!
Literally 'green sauce', Salsa Verde is tangy, savoury and slightly sweet all at the same time... and it takes about 3 minutes to make! Put the stick blender in a few anchovies, capers, a little olive oil, garlic, vinegar, and plenty of fresh herbs, and you're there!
Its sharpness makes it the perfect counterbalance for something strong and meaty - dip a barbecued Italian sausage in it and you'll never look back. For non-meat eaters it also goes great with roasted vegetables. Plus, with Salsa Verde you're looking at a sauce which is pretty healthy compared with the likes of ketchup, mayo or barbecue sauce.
Once you've got a batch, it will keep for a week or so in the fridge if you put a layer of oil on top, and you can turn it into other things too; for example thin it out a little and use it as a salad dressing.
So simple and cheap to make, but with an intense and moreish flavour - honestly give this one a go, you won't regret it!
