The Sauce Verte

I had to call this the sauce verte as it’s one of my most favorite recipes that I’ve conjured up like a mad scientist in my small kitchen. It’s a green sauce that adds a flavorful punch on top of a steak or any kind of meat or poultry. It’s a burst of freshness and I encourage you to try it!The Sauce Verts IngredientsHere’s what you’ll need for my special sauce (serves two):

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parlsey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped scallions
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dijon
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Begin by mincing all the greens and garlic: the parsley, scallions, basil, capers and garlic.

Chopping the Greens

Ideally, you would need a food processor to make all these ingredients equal in size. I unfortunately have limited supplies so here’s what I use instead to further mince these ingredients:Mincing the Greens

Once everything has been minced (it’s okay if there are some big pieces left–I think it makes it more rustic), add the lemon juice, dijon and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. This sauce can be made in advance and refrigerated. It will thicken slightly because there’s olive oil in it so I remove it from the refrigerator ahead of time so it can be served at room temperature. If it’s too thick, I’ll add another teaspoon of lemon juice and whisk it in to incorporate.
