Pre Spring Parsley

Garden Fresh Parsley
Spring is very close and the weather has turned, its clear and getting warm now. Last summers herbs that re-seeded themselves are starting to grow and my parsley is doing really well. When I think of parsley I think of Salsa Verde (green sauce) It is the Italian green parsley sauce of parsley, capers, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice. All ingredients go in a food processor or blender and its blended smooth. Tangy from the lemon juice with a lot of fresh herb flavor from the just picked parsley. I marinated a free range chicken breast in white wine, garlic, olive oil and lemon zest. Seared on a hot cast iron pan and finished in the oven along with a pan of Yukon gold potatoes and onions. When the chicken is done, its a dollop of Salsa Verde on top and dinner is served.
