We love having this sauce on hand for topping vegetables, eggs and plain meats. It’s a great companion to our Red Roasted Pepper Sauce. In fact, the two work well side-by-side for a beautiful topping and great flavors. This recipe was inspired by Pinch of Yum, Kale Chimichurri Sauce. Print Recipe Green Kale and Herb…
