Green “Everything” Sauce

I use this sauce as a base for salad dressings, marinades, dips, and sauces. Based on the Mexican salsa verde, this blend of fresh herbs, lemon, and kicky anchovy fillets can transform simple grilled meats and fish into elegant feasts. Douse it over roasted veggies, stir it into Greek yogurt for an instant cocktail hour dip, and smother fried eggs with it for breakfast!


½ cup packed parsley leaves, chopped

½ cup packed cilantro leaves, chopped

¼ cup basil leaves, chopped

2 tsp chopped capers

2 anchovy filets, chopped

2 small garlic cloves, crushed and chopped

2 tablespoons minced onion

Pinch red pepper flakes

3 teaspoons red wine vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

5-8 tablespoons olive oil, depending on desired consistency

Lemon juice, to taste


Stir all the ingredients into a small bowl and whisk. That’s it! Check for flavor and adjust the acidity, salt, and oil levels for the desired consistency. This sauce can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
