Herb and Ginger Green Sauce


Herb and Ginger Green Sauce

Chimichurri, salsa verde, herb chutney, just a few names for sauces that are chalked full of herby deliciousness. They are the perfect vehicle to use up any number of green herbs and onions you have lingering at the bottom of your crisper. You can experiment with any number of other aromatics like dried herbs and spices, ginger, garlic, chili’s along with something acidic like lemon, lime or vinegar. Once you start experimenting the sky is really the limit.

These green sauces are flavour explosions that can be served with any number of proteins and vegetables, slathered on sandwiches or used as a dip for fried or baked appetizers. This one is a little bit spicy but fragrant from the ginger and fresh mint. Perfect to serve with my Frozen Veggie Pakoras or stirred into some mayonnaise to top my Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Turkey Burgers.
