Quick and Easy Green Sauce

Green SauceThis is a versatile sauce you can use on practically anything – pasta, fish, steak, salads, steamed vegetables, and so much more! Any greens and nuts you have on hand will work. I have made this with arugula, spinach, basil, and macadamia and cashew nuts with great results. This recipe uses 50% cilantro and 50% parsley and walnuts and is a little bit on the bitter side and has a fresh and tangy flavor on it’s own. It’s a good way to use up your greens and herbs before they go bad.

Serving Suggestions: Toss with your favorite pasta or steamed vegetables, spread on Baked Salmon or Steak, as a salad dressing (mix equal parts green sauce and extra virgin olive oil and season to taste)
