Summer graced Amsterdam with its presence last week, and it was amazing. Sunny, hot days (I still think it’s crazy that I now find 24℃ officially hot!) and clear blue skies every day. The whole city was in total fiesta mode, and it was finally time for the first beach picnic of the year.
I decided to whip up an Italian salsa verde, from a recipe by Jamie Oliver. We usually use salsa verde to top off grilled fish or chicken at home, but it works as a sandwich filling too. It’s yummy and easy to make.
The basic ingredients are simple: a few cloves of garlic, plus a handful of fresh mint, flat-leaf parsley, capers and pine nuts.
