Boiled new potatoes with salsa verde

boiled-new-potatoes-with-salsa-verde-5126144A very simple and quick way to prepare a delicious side dish, suitable for chicken,  tuna steaks, salmon fillets and all kinds of white fish. The original (or most popular) recipe for salsa verde includes anchovies. I didn’t have then but went for it anyway, and I can assure you the salsa is still very good!

Praparation time: 20-25 minutes

Serves: 4


500g new potatoes, washed and skins on Half a bunch of parsley 15g (half a cup) mint 15 g (half a cup) basil leaves 2 tbsp. of capers 2 spring onions, green parts only, chopped ½  lemon, zest and juice only 1 small clove of garlic 50ml olive oil

Salt and black pepper to taste


Boil the potatoes in salted water for around 15 minutes or until tender.

Whilst the potatoes are cooking, blitz the herbs, onions, lemon zest and juice, garlic and oil in a food processor until a chunky sauce is formed, similar in consistency to pesto. Add the capers and give it another quick blitz. Season with salt and pepper.

To serve, drain the potatoes and mix with the salsa verde. Voila!
