Green Sauce & Co.

Enjoy the green sides of Frankfurt!
The original Frankfurt Green Sauce is made out of seven herbs that are grown in the traditional city disctrict of Oberrad. We recommend to enjoy this dish with your families and friends in one of the many apple wine taverns located in Old Sachsenhausen just across the Main river. It is the perfect end for a day in Frankfurt.

Frankfurt Green Sauce

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.
