German Green Herbal Sauce

This traditional German green herbal sauce comes originally from Frankfurt. During summertime you can buy in most supermarkets in Germany a ready-made selection of herbs used in this recipe. But even outside Germany you can easily find all these greens. If you are missing 1 or 2, you can also replace them with other ones that you like. It is the variety of herbs that makes this herbal sauce so aromatic and refreshing. In this recipe, I am using the ready-made selection of herbs, which is the original mix for this sauce and it includes dill, sorrel, cress, melissa, parsley and chives.

The German Green Herbal Sauce tastes great with red meat – lamb or beef, but it also works well in a vegetarian setting, for example, a dish containing potatoes and eggs, or simply served on a slice of bread.
