Citrus Salsa Verde

Citrus Salsa Verde

It is well known that we eat with our eyes first. This salsa is a great example of that. It is utterly ravishing and just as exciting in your mouth as it is for your eyes. This sauce is a great multipurpose accompaniment to many grilled meats, seafood, vegetables, and can even work as a marinade. It combines the full force of herbs, the confident support of pungents and the joie de vivre of fresh citrus to bestow anything it touches with a sparkle. For something that is so easy to make, it tastes wonderfully dynamic and complex. Try it and see!

200ml olive oil

4tbsp rice wine vinegar
