A nice sauce that is good over salmon, chicken, boiled potatoes, and vegetables. Especially good if you love parsley!

Wonderful, easy sauce. I took a piece of toast, layered it with ham, added a poached egg, some cheddar cheese and poured this wonderful sauce over all. Delicious and a great way to use up the parsley I have instead of just using it for garnish. Thanks for a great recipe! Made for Recipe Tag.

Easy to prepare and we enjoyed the sauce over roasted veggies as "veggie bowls": simple quinoa, roasted cauliflower, carrots, beets, asparagus and green beans and of course the sauce. Yum! Thanks! Reviewed for Veg Tag/April.

This is a really good sauce and goes well over mashed potatoes, instead of just using some milk and seasoning. I had some leftover so I used it over my tilapia and it worked very well with that too. I think the parsley is a good herb to use, and the nutmeg added a nice zing to it.
