Technically “salsa” just means sauce, but I’ve yet to see a version that doesn’t include tomatoes (or at very least, tomatilloes). This poses a problem when you actively avoid nightshades (RIP, Mexican food) since tomatoes are therefore off-limits.
Gordon Ramsay to the rescue. Here’s a recipe for perfect roast fillet of beef with a salsa verde that is completely without tomatoes.
Made with a mortar and pestle, the salsa verde includes:
- Anchovies + oil
- Garlic (crushed)
- Dijon mustard (I’d sub a sugar-free mustard)
- Sherry vinegar
- Olive oil
Roasted potatoes notwithstanding, this is a dish I’ll be trying in the near future.
