Italian Salsa Verde

Recently discovered this fantastic green sauce at a BBQ.  A friend had put it on roasted potatoes and they were amazing.  After my initial rejection that it was salsa verde, I learn't that it was indeed, only that it was the Italian salsa verde not to be confused with the Mexican sauce. I've used it to top Tilapia and found it to be a perfect accompaniment to white fish.  Pairs great with a glass of marsanne or a pinot gris.

1 bunch parsley  (can substitute some parsley with other herbs such as dill, basil, and mint)
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp capers
3 gherkins
4 anchovy fillets
1 tbsp seedy mustard
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil

Finely chop parsley, garlic, capers, gherkins, and anchovy fillets.

Combine with mustard, vinegar, and oil.
