“Green Sauce”…You will be putting it on everything!!
I created this sauce as a way to have a healthy topping over a chicken dish one night. After that dinner I realized that this dressing type recipe could be used for way more than just a topping for chicken. I started using it for potatoes, salads, meat marinade, as a spread for sandwiches, and many other things.
The green sauce is raw and parsley and cilantro are packed with vitamins and nutrients. The cilantro and parsley are fairly rich in vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K. Adding cilantro and parsley to your diet is a great way to add flavor to a dish or beverage without adding extra calories, fat or sodium. Cilantro is also named coriander.
It is best to thoroughly rinse the parley and especially the cilantro. The last thing you want is little bits of sand getting in your way while trying to enjoy your green sauce
How long you blitz the green sauce in your Food Processor is up to you. If you want a very smooth consistency then let it go a little longer in the processor. If you want it to be more of a chunkier/leafier consistency, then blitz for short bursts until your desired consistency is reached. The smooth consistency green sauce is good for spreading on sandwiches, while the chunkier/leafier consistency is great in salads and on meats.
You can easily turn this into a cannabis infused recipe by using Cannabis Oil instead of olive oil. You can use your favorite strain of marijuana for this mixture as it is great for any time of day. A nice Sativa oil for a day-time spread for salads and sandwiches, or a CBD oil for night-time as a topping for meats or white fish.
