All the herbs in this salsa verde, or green sauce, recipe is available in the spring and early summer. Wash them thoroughly and you can make almost two cups. I put mine in a small glass jar my father picked up from Ikea and stored it in the fridge for up to a week. It’s a great side with steak.
1 bunch of flat-leaf parsley, leaves only, washed
1 bunch of mint leaves
1 bunch of basil leaves
1/2 cup of capers, drained and rinsed
2 salt-packed anchovy fillets
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp sugar
2 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
olive oil, salt, pepper
1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine everything except the oil, salt and pepper. Pulse to form a coarse purée. While the motor is running, drizzle in the olive oil to form a smoother purée. Season with salt and pepper.
