Method

  1. Salsa verde is traditionally made with parsley, but I quite like to mix it up a bit and use a bit of basil and mint in there too. Use it to jazz up meat, fish or roasted vegetables, or you could even enjoy it as a lovely dip for roasted new potatoes.
  2. Pick and roughly chop the herb leaves in the centre of a large chopping board. Add the garlic, capers, cornichons and anchovies and continue chopping and mixing it all together until fine.
  3. Scrape everything into a large bowl and add the mustard, extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. Have a taste and season with salt and pepper. You might need to tweak the flavours a little, so keep tasting and add more oil, vinegar and seasoning if needed until you get it just right.
