These are the dishes that represent a place on a plate, they're those classics you just gotta try from Lebanese Lemonade to Portuguese Pineapple Cake, and, of course, our easy, healthy version of those recipes.
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.
