Everything in the salsa verde should be very finely chopped — by hand, for the best texture and flavor. It can be prepared up to two hours beforehand. This also let the flavors mingle. Any leftover sauce, can be livened up with a splash of lemon juice.
Italian salsa verde is also terrific served over other types of roasted vegetables, and even potatoes, pizza, and pasta. Or try it with roast lamb or grilled fish.
Italian salsa verde can be made with a mix of herbs. Use 1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley along with a mix of soft herbs such as tarragon, chervil, thyme, dill and marjoram.
