Chef Notes: Salsa Verde not to confused with the Mexican Salsa Verde made with tomatillo, is a wonderful condiment or sauce, to pair with bolliti misti (steam boiled meats) during Christmas time in Italy. Its also delicious pair with fish, and maybe some crostini as an hors d’oeuvre. Traditionally this recipe originates from the region of Piemonte in the north of Italy and the name used in those parts is called BAGNET VERT (green bath). Salsa Verde saves in your fridge for multiple days as long is put into a glass jar.
