ITALIAN SALSA VERDE (parsley green sauce recipe)
Prep Time

Italian salsa verde is a traditional sauce originally served along with boiled meats and fish, but merely spread on bread crostini is so good as well! The traditional recipe wants white vinegar, but I prefer to use the juice and the peels of a lemon. In this way, the taste of the salsa verde will be more delicate!

  • 1 bunch of parsley 60
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 3 anchovies in oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 oz soft inside of ciabatta bread (30 g)
  • 15 oz extra-virgin olive oil (200 g)
  • 1 tbsp lemon (alternatively 1 tbsp of white vinegar)
  • 1 pinch white pepper
  • to taste table salt
    First of all, boil the egg until hard boiled, then peel it. After that, rinse the parsley and discard the tougher parts of the stems. Now, grate the yellow part of the peel of the lemon and squeeze the juice. Eventually, pour all the ingredients into a blender and mix until obtaining a smooth and dense Italian salsa verde!
    Serve this delicious parsley sauce along with slow cooked, grilled or boiled meats and fish. Alternatively just spread it on lightly toasted Italian bread slices!
