      Portuguese Salsa Verde is a flavorful green sauce that is traditionally served with grilled meats, mussels, octopus, and vegetables.

      Portuguese salsa verde, also known as “Molho Verde” in Portuguese, is another variation of salsa verde. “Molho” means “sauce” and “Verde” – “green”.

      The ingredients used in Portuguese salsa verde typically include fresh parsley, onion, garlic, olive oil, vinegar (often red wine vinegar), and salt. Typically, you can add this sauce to all your favorite meals for finishing the dish and presentation itself.

      To make salsa verde, you need to clean, wash and chop the parsley leaves finely. Also, chop the onion. After, you can mix olive oil and red wine vinegar together and then added chopped onion and parsley until the desired consistency is reached. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.

      Can I use lemon or lime juice?

      Absolutely, you can use fresh lemon or lime juice. Alternatively, you can use white wine vinegar.

      Portuguese salsa verde is known for its vibrant green color and its tangy savory flavor. It adds a refreshing flavor to grilled beef or chicken, as well as seafood dishes. I also like to use it as a dipping sauce for a fresh piece of bread or serve it on top of boiled red potatoes.

      Can I add other ingredients?

      Yes, you can also add other herbs and spices to the salsa such as garlic, oregano, coriander leaves, and whatever you prefer.

      How much time do you need to make Salsa Verde?

      To make this Salsa Verde you need around 10 to 15 minutes. The whole process is not that difficult, you only need finely chop all parsley and onion and then mix them with liquids.

      What can i serve with this salsa?

      You can also serve fresh tomatoes or cucumbers and add salsa on top of the vegetables. Yum!

      Alternatively, you can serve this salsa with octopus in port wine. Adding this green sauce to a soup will give more flavor, too.

      Can I serve it straight away?

      Yes, you can serve this salsa verde right after you made it. But, if you want to enhance the flavors, wait for 15 minutes before serving.
