Fresh Green Herb Sauce: Easy to Make, and Easy to Impress

Like a smoothie for topping your veggies, this super easy-to-make sauce is full of nutrients

It’s the holidays, and the color green is on our minds. Bring on this version of a salsa verde! Great news, too, for hungry, low-skill hosts like us, as this is our kind of food prep: fast, hard to fail, but easy to impress. It is easy to substitute ingredients, too. Hard to go wrong here which, for us non-cooks, is a blessing. Spoon some of this yummy bright green sauce onto any vegetable or protein to make it infinitely tastier and better looking. This vitamin- and mineral-packed super sauce is sort of a smoothie for topping your veggies.
