Almond Salsa Verde (Phase 1 and Diabetes)

verde salsa with almonds

Almond Salsa Verde (Phase 1 and Diabetes)


  • 1/4 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 T fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 T capers
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 anchovy fillet (optional for phase 1-you can use some soy sauce in it's place)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, or more to taste
  • lemon juice, to taste
  • kosher salt + pepper, to taste


  • Pound the herbs to a paste using a mortar and pestle or finely chop and smash with the back of your chef’s knife. Transfer the herbs to a small bowl. Next, crush the capers, garlic, and anchovy (smashing them together until they’re cohesive but not a paste) then add them to the herbs. Stir in the olive oil and chopped almonds and season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper.


Great as a dip for vegetables or over meat.
