    Wouldn’t “Salsa Verde Sauce” mean “Green Sauce Sauce”?

    Yes. We see here English on the level of saying “with au jus.”

    The technical term is pleonasm, from Greek, pleon: more, too much. In the case of things like “ATM machine” and “PIN number”, the specific type of pleonasm is called RAS Syndrome.

    My father used to drive me crazy whenever he referred to his car’s polluction control valve as a “PCV Valve”.

    My pet peeve is “Sierra Nevada Mountains”. Sierra Nevada means “Snowy Mountains” — or literally “Mountains Snowy” in the Spanish manner.
