You may have noticed I am unapologetically reusing the picture from my Schnitzel recipe for this post--as discussed in that post, photography is not what led me to blogging. What can I say? I am a work in progress.
I had initially considered including the recipe for this deliciously easy sauce in the same post as the schnitzel, but I wanted to both make the distinction that the schnitzel is Whole30-compliant, while the sauce is not, and make the sauce recipe easier to search for and locate on its own. 'Cause it's good, y'all!
Now before I totally oversell it, let me clarify that this sauce may not inspire you to take off all your clothes, jump in a big vat of it and slosh around all day. Those sauces totally exist. But if you're looking for something punchy to liven up a dish or cut through rich flavors, this sauce does the trick. Also, it has four ingredients (plus S&P), and takes less than 5 minutes to make.
This recipe makes just enough for one batch of schnitzel, serving 4-8. Basically, you're going to rinse and finely chop about a 1/4 cup of fresh parsley and mix it with grainy mustard, apple cider vinegar, and honey. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and dinner just got more flavorful!
The sauce comes together in about one minute if you happen to have a mini food processor and can simply whir it up in there, but the old chef's knife and whisk will definitely do the trick if needed.
Here's what you'll need:
3 T (paleo-compliant) grainy mustard
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 T honey
¼ cup (loosely packed) fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Here's what you'll do:
Place all ingredients in a mini food processor and process until well blended but not homogenous--you want to be able to see flecks of parsley and mustard seeds.
Serve over schnitzel, fried or grilled chicken, pork chops, home fries, or any rich dish that could use a little brightening!
Special tools needed:
Mini food precessor (super helpful but totally optional)
