"Parsley - the jewel of herbs, both in the pot and on the plate." -Albert Stockli, Chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

This Salsa Verde is the classic Spanish sauce. There are as many recipes for Salsa Verde as there are ways to use this fantastic sauce. The flavor is both strong and subtle, and it pairs easily with something as delicate as mussels or sole - but it will also hold up to lamb, roast chicken, or grilled pork tenderloin.

Many recipes call for anchovies instead of the green olives. The briny flavor of both makes for a great sauce: salty, umami, and a bit sharp.

Salsa Verde recipe from Dr. Gourmet


  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint
  • 6 large green olives
  • 2 Tbsp. capers
  • 2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste

Place the parsley, mint, olives, capers, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender or mini chopper.

Blend by pulsing the blender until the sauce begins to get smoother, but it should be a coarse texture - not as smooth as a pesto or chimichurri.
