A fresh, herb-filled sauce that is perfect drizzled over grilled steak or pork.

Adapted from "The Winemaker Cooks," by Christine Hanna.

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño chile, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 cup (40 grams) finely chopped mixed fresh flat-leaf parsley, cilantro/fresh coriander, mint and/or basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 small anchovies, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup (240 mL) extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

In a blender or food processor, combine the garlic, jalapeño, shallots, herbs, lime juice, anchovies, salt, and pepper. Blend until a paste is formed. With the machine running, drizzle in the olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified. 

Salsa Verde Shopping Tip

Stocking up on no-cook items like cheese, nuts, olives, crackers, and dips will cut down on prep time and help ensure you have enough food for any unexpected guests.

Salsa Verde Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
