Frankfurt Green Sauce is the most refreshing sauce I know! There is nothing better in the summer than to go to apple wine tavern to eat Green Sauce and to drink some apple wine.

The Frankfurt Green Sauce contains 7 herbs: chives, parsley, cress, sorrel, chervil, borage and salad burnet and it is very healthy. The recipe exists 2000 years and in our family, we prepare it with sour cream and we spice it with lemon, salt and sugar. Typically the Frankfurt Green Sauce is served with hard boiled eggs, but of course, you can also have it with a Schnitzel! Another great way to eat it is with cooked beef topside.
