Steak, fully cooked to your liking
2 scallions, finely chopped
2½ cups very finely chopped kale, arugula or other dark leafy green (chop leaves and stems)
1 garlic clove, finely grated
⅓ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper
- Add the first four ingredients to a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside while you’re grilling the steak.
- To serve: Place salsa verde on a plate and arrange steak on top.
Ingredient combination: Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl to create the base of your salsa verde. These ingredients typically include fresh herbs, such as parsley, cilantro, or basil, along with garlic, lemon or lime juice, and olive oil.
Season to taste: Season the salsa verde mixture with salt and pepper to your desired taste. Adjust the seasoning based on personal preferences, keeping in mind that the flavors will enhance when combined with the grilled steak.
Set aside for flavor development: Allow the salsa verde to sit and develop its flavors while you're grilling the steak. This resting period allows the ingredients to meld together, resulting in a more cohesive and flavorful sauce.
Plating: When ready to serve, spoon the salsa verde onto a plate, creating a bed for the grilled steak. Arrange the steak on top of the salsa verde to showcase the beautiful combination of flavors.
Customize to preference: Feel free to customize the salsa verde to your liking. You can experiment with additional ingredients like capers, anchovies, or chili flakes to add extra depth and complexity to the sauce. Personalize it based on your taste preferences and desired level of heat.
