Salsa verde

Side Serves 4 20 min
This green sauce can be customised to taste, adjusting the quantities of anchovies, mustard etc, and even adding in a bit of chilli. The consistency depends on how you intend to use the salsa: it should be quite thick if you are serving it as a sauce for lamb or fish, thinner if it is being used for coating vegetables or as a dressing.
