{Salsa Verde} Italian Herb Sauce | http://saltandwind.com

If you know Mexican salsa verde, well, this is not that. Italian salsa verde is a sweet-sour herby sauce that hails from the north and is traditionally served along heavy roasts and stews. That tradition exists for a reason (because it's delicious), but we like to use it all over the place from a sauce alongside fried zucchini blossoms to atop a piece of grilled fish or slathered in our favorite steak sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

    about 3 ounces

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 anchovy fillet
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon capers

    rinsed if salted

  • 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until you have a chunky puree. Stop the processor, scrape down the sides, and pulse until you have a light green mixture that looks like pesto. Taste and add more salt or pepper as desired. 

Tip

Salsa verde can be made up to 2 days ahead of time. Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
