with hard-boiled eggs and boiled potatoes
Frankfurt Green Sauce is served cold over hard-boiled eggs and boiled potatoes. It is made of seven different kinds of herbs: borage, chervil, cress, parsley, salad burnet, sorrel and chives.
The most famous myth is that green sauce was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's favourite dish, invented by his mother. Actually, the first green sauce recipe was published in 1860 in a cookbook by Wilhelmine Rührig, but Frankfurt locals love to connect their favourite fare to the renowned author, who was born in Frankfurt.
