Let me introduce you to one of my favorite ways to welcome Spring!
Frankfurter Grüne Soße
This yummy concoction is not only super healthy, it is easy to make. When I was able to buy the Grüne Soße herbs packaged in newspaper at the fruit stand, I knew Spring was official :).
One of my favorite stories to tell with this meal is that the poor farmers collected these wild and free herbs in the pastures, serving them over the two things they had readily available: Potatoes and eggs. It is also tradition to serve this on the Thursday before Easter, for good health for the year.
Pokey Shmokey, here’s the recipe:
Chop up parsley, (each one bunch), chives,chervil,cress, dandelion, pimpinelle, sorrel, borage (if you live close to me, I have borage coming out of my ears in my backyard….)
Put in mixer. Add 1 garlic clove, and enough thick (greek style) joghurt to make a thick sauce. Add some mustard, lemon, and salt & pepper to taste.
So you can use sour cream instead of joghurt.
Serve over new potatoes and hard boiled eggs.
In honor of this Spring day, meet Spring Goddess #2:
