Meyer Lemon Salsa Verde

Meyer Lemon Salsa Verde

Salsa verde means, literally, "green sauce," and it's essentially an uncooked type of sauce rich in herbs and big on flavor. There are many variations of it from many diverse cuisines, from the German Grüne Soße to Argentinian chimichurri. This version uses the delicious and uniquely fragrant flavors of Meyer lemons enhanced with shallots and piquant capers. It's a delectable way to add taste to scrambled eggs, grilled breads, roast chicken, fish, or beef, or even sandwiches. Make a batch and see how quickly you'll need to make another.
