I hope with this book, I become known for my green sauces, which my family and friends now affectionally call "Haas Sauces." Chimichurri reigns supreme in my house, but I wanted to do a cutting board version of a green sauce- one where no food processor or blender is required. This one packs a punch with its briny capers, bright citrus, and anti-inflammatory herbs. It's so easy. Put it on everything- soups, meat, eggs, grains, you name it.
