Italian Salsa Verde

Italian Salsa Verde1

This version of an Italian Salsa Verde is a less acidic and more savory cousin to chimichurri. The blend of capers and anchovies adds depth, while the parsley and lemon bring freshness and lightness to the dish.

This recipe pairs nicely with a steak or other cut of grilled or seared meat. You can also use it to top fish or chicken.

After preparing the sauce, make sure to let it sit in the fridge for the flavors to develop.
