Dear Diary,

For my last meal in San Francisco, my  mom and I made broiled salmon with Italian salsa verde. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this style of salsa verde, it’s a cold rustic sauce that can be served with any assortment of vegetables, fishes and meats. Filled with fresh herbs and other tasty ingredients, this sauce is perfection. Trust me.

Although I was sad to leave San Francisco the next day and, thus, conclude my Magic Bullet Tour, I was happy knowing that it ended with the perfect meal. Enjoy your salmon with salsa verde!
