A bright, herb sauce is one of chef and cookbook author Mei Li’s most important “building block” recipes. It’s one that she uses across many other dishes. “The nice thing about it is that you can also use kale or arugula or spinach, so it’s a way to use up many different kinds of greens, not just herbs,” she says.
