I thought I had better offer my recipe for salsa verde as it was used in my last recipe, and will be used in many to follow. We are old friends. We never get tired of each other. We’ve shared highs and lows…. on with the show.
Big surprise here, another recipe that uses herbs from your herb garden. Got one yet? No? Bet you wish you had….
SALSA VERDE (green sauce)
1 cup each picked parsley, mint, basil and rocket
2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon capers and the vinegar they live in
1-2 anchovies, or not if you are vego
1/2 cup olive oil
- blitz all ingredients except oil in a food processor or blender, or bash them in a mortar and pestle until they are a smooth paste. Slowly add oil while still mixing to emulsify. Check seasoning*. Mmmm
Seasoning in cooking is a biggie. It’s not one of those things you can “just not worry about”. It is quite often what separates the home kitchen from the commercial. Seasoning. Salt and pepper. Essential to heighten taste and enhance flavour. Get into the habit of checking your seasoning. Do it now!
Please has someone out there got a dinner challenge for me? I seriously think i will be flooded in…
