Spanish Salsa Verde


Green sauce is often known as Salsa Verde in Mexico and Spain. Spanish Salsa Verde is a rustic and tempting dipping sauce .The Spanish  use it as a topping with fish or over slab of polenta ,on a tortilla or simply add on the toast ,imagination is yours.

For the last day of condiments from countries ,I made this sauce from Big Vegan cookbook gifted by +Pavani N last week.We are loving this sauce so much that I made it twice after that.

I served  it with steaming hot polenta and the next day with herbed polenta fries.
