Creamy, Chilled Herb Sauce with Boiled Eggs
This Is A Sponsored Post That Contains Affiliate Links
A cool refreshing meal for those hot summer days - that's all I am craving these days as I am trying to find ways to keep cool and can (or let's say should) only eat so much ice cream! Grüne Soße is a local specialty from the Frankfurt area of Germany and consists of a chilled herb sauce that is traditionally served with boiled eggs, but often also served with either pan-sauteed fish or steak. It's equally as delicious as easy to make since there isn't much cooking required, helping keep you and your kitchen cool in the process.
Grüne Soße - Kansas City Style!
Why KC style? Because some of the herbs used in the Frankfurt-style sauce are simply not available in the US, or hard to find. Moreover, there are no real rules of which herbs you should use, so feel free to experiment for yourself as well, but some of my favorites to use are chives, dill and I also add some fresh garlic and lemon juice into the mix for additional zing.

What I Used For Kansas City style Grüne Soße
Ingredients for about 6 servings:
- 400 g herbs (I used 150 g dandelion greens, 100 g chives, 50 g parsley, 50 g dill, 25 g rue, 25 g cilantro)
- 200 g light sour cream
- 1000 g Greek yoghurt (0 or 2%)
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 eggs, hard boiled
- Sort through the fresh herbs, picking out any leaves that don't look good, rinse them, then remove any larger stems. Puree sour cream, salt, mustard and sugar using a mixer (I also added 2 cloves of garlic to mine).
- Transfer to a bowl and add in the Greek yoghurt and fresh lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
- Half the eggs and arrange the grüne Soße on a plate with the eggs and a side of boiled potatoes. You can also serve the sauce with grilled or pan seared fish or steak instead of the eggs. Guten Appetit!
