Salsa Verde Canapés

Crostini are little appetizers that you can invent yourself depending on what’s in season and what you have in the house. Salsa verde is a tangy herby sauce often served to accompany boiled meats, but delicious in its own right. Cut thin slices of firm bread (Tuscan-style bread is best but baguette will do), toast it if you like, and top with the sauce:


  • 2 boiled eggs
  • Parsley, small bunch, leaves only
  • Capers, 10 to 15
  • Garlic, 1 clove
  • Olive oil
  • Vinegar (apple or wine), a splash
  • A little anchovy paste or 1 anchovy fillet (optional)


  1. Combine the above ingredients (except the oil and vinegar) into a smooth (but not completely uniform) paste using a food processor. Add the olive oil and vinegar. Salt to taste.
  2. Use to top crostini or to accompany other dishes.

    Made this for an afternoon wine tasting for friends and it disappeared! There is already a request to make it again! Used the leftover sauce on some delicate homemade pasta and that was also a big hit.
