Nightshade-Free Salsa Verde

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
  • Capers
  • Garlic (crushed)
  • Dijon mustard (I’d sub a sugar-free mustard)
  • Sherry vinegar
  • Mint
  • Parsley
  • Olive oil
  • S&P

Roasted potatoes notwithstanding, this is a dish I’ll be trying in the near future.
