All the fresh green flavours from a salsa verde ad some creaminess that you get from a pesto, but without the cheese / dairy that some can’t have and I think just makes this taste zinger and more fresh from the meadows.
Summery dream that I’ve been drizzling on anything and everything. I will have a jar of this, or very similar, in my fridge for the foreseeable.
- Large fistful of wild garlic [If you can’t forage for it they sell it at Farmdrop along with the best selection from an online store I’ve ever seen, and with ethics and thought too.]
- 3 sprigs of basil, stems removed
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 lemon juiced
- sprig parsley
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- Large pinch sea salt (by far my favourite is Maldon and I buy it in a huge bucket which makes it way cheaper and I never run out! Maldon Organic Maldon Sea Salt 1.5 Kg
Roughly chop all the green leaves, add to a small processor bowl, along with the rest of the ingredients keeping half of the olive oil back. Blitz until a thick sauce, then drizzle in extra oil until you have a thick salsa that can be drizzled or dolloped as you prefer.
+TOP TIP you can freeze this perfectly in ice cube blocks to pop out when you nee to perk up a sauce, a piece of fish or a salad for months to come!
