Heart Of The House

Salsa Verde

Gosh, how time flies.  Having been away for quite some time,  I am happy to be back home.   The last few days, I have easing myself back in and settling into my usual routine, replenishing my pantry.  One of the things I like to have in the pantry is a bottle of salsa verde which literally means green sauce.  I use whatever herbs I have around and for this recipe I used parsley, nasturtium leaves and rocket.  It is great on meat, mix with feta cheese for a spread or add a dollop to your omelette, it is just so versatile.


1/2 bunch of parsley
1/2 bunch of rocket
a handful of nasturtium leaves
a few anchovies, finely chopped
6 cloves of peeled garlic, finely chopped
1 tbs capers, coarsely chopped
extra virgin olive oil
black pepper


Chop herbs finely.,
Add the anchovies, garlic and capers to the chopped herbs.
Add olive oil, just enough to give a nice consistency.
Season with black pepper.
