Salsa Verde (with leftover beef wellington)

I know this is probably hard to hear, but we had leftover beef wellington. I guess I just made too much. And the puff pastry had become wet and soggy, so I took the meat out and looked at it. Not bad, I thought, but how can we eat it?


I made the most amazing salsa verde ever, whipped up a frivolous salad et voila!

Here’s how I made the deliciously easy salsa verde:

and parsley, of course


expertly stripped of the stalks by Boyfriend 🙂

Put the caper berries (that are oh so much better than simple capers), dijon mustard, olives (I used taggiasche, aka cailletier, a very very tasty Italian type) and parsley into the blender. If the mix is too dry, add some very high quality olive oil carefully until you reach the right texture.



And it’s ready! All you have to do now is spread it on your leftover beef (in our case, wellington) and enjoy it with some pine nut salad





About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
