Tuna, Avocado and Asparagus Salad with Salsa Verde

I think it can sometimes be a challenge to eat all the good things for you AND make it super tasty as well.

That’s why I love salsa verde, a fresh green sauce packed with punchy flavours that can be used on so many things.

Steaks, chicken pieces, fish, vegetables, even eggs. It is such a versatile condiment and can take any meal to the next level.

It’s great with some greens and any protein for a really healthy meal any day of the week.
