A good sauce can cover a mediocre meal and make it fantastic! This sauce was inspired by a random assortment of ingredients in my fridge and pantry and the need for something yummy to slather on that evening’s veggie bowl dinner.

Did you know that parsley is a also a good source of iron? 100 grams (1 1/2 cups) of parsley provides 34% of your daily iron – more than double the amount of iron from spinach! And pairing lemon juice with parsley enhances iron absorption, making this dip not only delicious but helpful for those looking to increase iron in their diet. Plus it is bursting with Vitamins A, C and K, helpful in supporting vision, immune health and bone health.
