(serves 4)

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 1 punnet (20 g) fresh mint leaves (save a few leaves for garnish)
  • 1 punnet (20 g) fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • grated rind & juice of a lemon
  • salt & pepper

  • 2 medium yellow peppers, sliced into squares

Method:

  1. For the salsa verde: put the olive oil, mint, parsley, garlic, lemon rind & juice, and some salt & pepper into a small blender. Blend to a smooth pulp. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
