Salsa Verde

SERVES: 4 | PREP TIME: 15 min

This salsa verde is a very versatile and delicious addition to any meal. We have used a combination of rocket, parsley, and coriander but you can use any greens you desire, including spinach and kale. The capers and mustard give it a lovely sharpness and the lemon keeps it fresh and zesty.
