Italian Salsa Verde
I love sauces. It’s only natural since I’m fairly saucy myself. One that I think is pretty under rated is the Italian Salsa Verde aka Green Sauce. It’s bright vibrant and BOLD. There are many many versions of salsa verde depending on which family you ask or even depending on what region you’re from. Some recipes contain bread, anchovies, capers etc. This is the version that I make most often. It’s perfect on chicken, fish, pork as a condiment for sandwiches or even for dipping bread. It’s a multi-tasking work horse of a sauce.
You could make this salsa verde by mincing everything finely with a knife OR you could pulse it up in a snap in a blender. Like this Blendtec Designer Series Wildside blender. It’s sleek, sexy and serious about blending (1560 watts of pure power). I’ve been lucky to have worked with Blendtec for a few years now. I reviewed their Total Blender in the past and absolutely loved it. It’s a staple in my kitchen. The answer to “will it blend” is always YES! When I heard I would be able to review the new Designer Series I was both excited and hesitant. I didn’t know how it could be any better than my Blendtec Total Blender which quite honestly rocks. Guess what? It is!
They’ve literally thought of everything with this new design. “It’s been engineered to bring a whole new level of beauty and functionality to the high-end blender category, without compromising the famous power and efficiency of our Total Blender Classic Series. Features include all of these unique Blendtec advantages:”
- Complete speed control
- Vivid icons
- New sleek design – touch pad screen that disappears when you’re not using it.
- Easy, fast cleanup – no nobs, dials or the like to catch unwanted gunk! Simply wipe off and voila!
- Versatile functionality
All that and a twist. A twister jar that is. It’s perfect for making nut butters, salad dressings, baby food and so much more! Now who wouldn’t want all that? Want to WIN one? Of course you do, did I mention it’s worth $600!
