Sauces can truly make or break a meal – they can also be ridiculously hard to make, adding extra stress to a meal. This sauce is so easy, it only takes five minutes and can compliment a huge variety of meals.

I’ve used this sauce on everything from tacos to eggs to pairing with hollandaise for brunch. I’m keeping this post short and sweet so you can get right to making this sauce, you won’t regret it!

P.S. it keeps for about a week in the fridge.

Magical Green Sauce

The simplest of sauces to elevate any meal – or eat with a spoon, I won't judge!
