Aside from it’s excellent name, this tangy, vibrant green sauce is a superb accompaniment to a variety of dishes. It’s especially good to throw together if you’re entertaining and looking for something to jazz up an existing recipe that’s otherwise a little bit plain.

It’s so easy – just blend all the ingredients together in the food processor and leave in the fridge until dinner is ready to be served.
