Anyone that knows me well, will know that I am not one for sauces. In fact I internally cringe when I see plates presented over drizzled with sauces. And that applies to desserts too. Shudder eeek!
Actually that has been one of the biggest adjustments moving back to Melbourne, is that most meals are doused in sauce. Even side dishes come presented with a side of dipping sauce. Why? It is so unnecessary and only adds unwanted calories (I even hate that word), and makes for unhealthy choices.
However, if you must add a sauce, this green sauce is exactly what a sauce should be in my humble opinion. It's smooth, fresh and healthy.
Traditionally used to drizzle over bollito di carne (slow cooked boiled meat) to add last minute freshness, this green sauce is also magical on fish or your favourite carved meat. Depending on the region, some recipes call for bread and egg yolks. However, I omit both opting for quicker and healthier version.
I was first introduced to salsa verde when living with Silvia in Versilia, she would always have a jar of this in the fridge and it would often make an appearance on the dining table. She would often drizzle it over fish, salad and ripe tomatoes.
Throughout my working years I was reacquainted with this vibrant sauce, as the lady I worked for was an avid fan. My fridge would always be stocked with a fresh batch!
