This dip is delicious served with toasted focaccia bread or pita crisps.

Ingredients

  • 4 sprigs of fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • Sprig of flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons (100 milliliters) extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Tear the basil leaves from the stems and put in a food processor. Follow with the rest of the ingredients and blend for 1 minute.

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.
