"Pesto is such a great standard. It's so simple to make and always tastes good." -Tamra Davis, Author
Gremolata is the most basic of all green sauce recipes. A bit of parsley, oil, garlic, lemon…
All of this is quite simple but also so complex. The brightness of parsley and lemon is well balanced with the mellow flavors of garlic and olive oil. There are so many variations on great green sauces – pestos, chimichanga, salsa verde – they all have their variations and complexities.
This sauce is perfect on almost anything. It will complement salmon or chicken while also bringing its own flavor to the dish. All of this with tons of monounsaturated fats to improve your Mediterranean diet score.
