Salsa Verde

Chicken Salsa Verde
One of my all time favorite sauces is Salsa Verde which simply translates to "Green Sauce". This classic Italian sauce in it's basic form is a raw blend of olive oil, parsley and capers. It's common to serve this highly flavored sauce with more bland cooked foods such as Bolito Misto (Mixed Boil) I really like it with grilled fish or chicken. Tonight's quick one-pan meal of chicken breasts sauteed with dino kale included a generous serving of Salsa Verde spooned over the top.  Love it.

Salsa Verde
1-2 bunches Flat leaf Italian parsley
1/4 cup Capers, rinsed
1 cup Olive oil
2 Garlic cloves
Juice of one lemon

1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
