The Perfect Green Sauce

I saw Mariel Hemingway on the food network being interviewed by Rachael Ray. In this episode, Mariel showed how she made this wonderful green sauce that she puts on everything; fish, chicken, or salads. Admittedly it did look suspicious. After all it was very GREEN. The ingredients were not unique, but not items that I would have ever thought to put together. I decided to buy her book, "Healthy Living from the Inside Out". The green sauce recipe is in the book, however the recipe in the book is not quite like what she did on the show. The variations from the show included an unfiltered apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of stevia (an herb used for a sweetener). It is a wonderful recipe that you just kind of have to adjust to your own taste.

Green-Green Sauce & Dip
adapted from Mariel Hemingway's
"Healthy Living from the Inside Out"

1 bag baby spinach
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup "French's Mustard"
4 kalamata olives and a splash of juice from the bottle
1/4 cup unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1 pinch of stevia
water as needed

Put everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Use water as needed to get the desired consistency. Use on salads, fish, or meat.

Thanks Mariel Hemingway!!
