It’s 60 degrees and sunny here, you guys! I just want to dance and scream and hug everything in sight! Can you feel my squeeze of excitement?!
We’ve been firing up the grill for dinners over the last week and boy does it feel good. Less mess in the kitchen, more fresh food, and QUICK…the grill is just so quick! And just as the grill has come out of hibernation, so has this magic green sauce. I know I’ve told y’all about it before in some way, shape or form. But this stuff has been made at least 5 times over the last week…I double the recipe in hopes of it lasting us a while but it just gets smeared, smothered, poured and drizzled so much that I can’t keep up! I need to get that herb garden going:)
There are so many uses for this sauce…it’s legit magical. Nick and I’s VERY favorite condiment. Drizzle it on any grilled meat or fish and you’ll never need a chimichurri again. Serve it with fresh veggies and you can say goodbye to ranch. It’s pure bliss as a vinaigrette for any green salad. Or over roasted or baked sweet or russet potatoes. And my kids fave: drizzled over a caprese salad. Georgia will fight you to the death for the last bite;)
We basically put it on all the things…like ALL! Its bright and fresh and transforms any basic prepared meal into something special. If I could force you to make just one recipe of mine…this one would be up there on the list!
The Magic Green Sauce
1 1/2 Cups Fresh Parsley Leaves
3/4 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves
1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves
1 Garlic Clove
1/4 Cup Cider Vinegar
2 Teaspoons Honey
2 Teaspoons Dijon Mustard
3/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2-3/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Place the parsley, basil, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, honey, Dijon, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor and process until well combined. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil, starting with 1/2 a cup and adding more if needed until you’ve reached your desired consistency-i usually go with a little over half a cup-and process until smooth. Serve at room temperature or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
