The bright, sharp flavors of this salsa verde really bring out the best in smoky grilled meats. In this video, you’ll see how to make homemade salsa verde. Chef John’s version of this ancient raw herb sauce is made with fresh parsley, sharp garlic, briny capers, and salty anchovy paste. Combine everything with a little olive oil and a splash of vinegar, and you have yourself the perfect partner for grilled meats. The secret is in the grinding. If you have a molcajetes (the ancient coarse-stone grinding tool), by all means use it. For the rest of us, a regular mortar and pestle works beautifully. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Green Sauce. Fresh and bright-tasting, it really is the ideal sauce for summer grilling. See more Chef John videos >>
