Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup parsley - finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp capers - finely chopped
  • 1 shallot - finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic - finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Aleppo pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar optional, omit for Whole30
  • 2 anchovy filets - finely chopped optional
  • kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Add walnuts to a cold non-stick or stainless-steel skillet. Place over medium heat and toast nuts until warm and fragrant. Toss regularly to avoid burning.
  2. Transfer nuts to a cutting board and place garlic overtop. Let nuts gently heat the garlic to mellow out some of the sharp flavour.
  3. Add nuts and garlic to a medium-sized mixing bowl along with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Stir everything until well combined. Taste for seasoning and adjust salt and pepper as required.
  5. Walnut Salsa Verde can be stored in a sealed jar for up to 5 days in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer.
