About Italian Salsa Verde
Italian salsa verde, also known as salsa verde all'italiana or green sauce, is a sauce made with a base of fresh herbs, capers, (anchoives if not vegan), and is often used as a condiment for meat, fish, and vegetables. It is similar to the Mexican salsa verde in that it is a green sauce, but the two sauces have different flavor profiles due to the use of different ingredients.
My recipe doesn't have capers, so I guess it isn't quite salsa verde, but I might try adding capers in the future! I honestly didn't realize this when I first made the recipe, so it might evolve over time! (but I still love this sauce as is so it is what it is and I'm still sharing it)
About my *kinda sorta* Salsa Verde
This is a simple tasty condiment that should be in everyone's repertoire. It's a delicious and versatile way to finish off a variety of dishes. Roasted Potatoes, Veggie Cakes, Vegan Egg Scrambles, Tacos, spooned on top of grilled veg, I even like it instead of a typical salad dressing on crunchy chopped salads. Every time I makeMujaddara (one of my favourite Middle Eastern rice and lentil dishes, I want this on the side with chopped romaine lettuce.)
Chopped parsley (I will add cilantro sometimes if I have it), olive oil, lemon juice, garlic S & P, and a sprinkle of chili flakes if desired. Simple. You can adjust the amount of garlic and lemon to your personal taste. I think it depends on what you like and what you are serving it with. (I personally love garlic, and I like to make it bright, but sometimes I serve extra lemon on the side of certain dishes which would add more acidity overall)
I tend to go through a batch of this quickly and always wish I had more. I'll probably start doubling it for my purposes!
