Light Green Sauce Recipe

The light green sauce is a pureed sauce made with fresh veggies like lettuce, zucchini, and green onions along with parsley. Processed with cheese, and seasoned, the light green sauce is flavored with lemon juice. Fresh and tangy, I like to serve this sauce with almost anything. you can try it with plain cooked rice too!
