Looking for a simple and easy way to switch up your salsa this summer? What about this incredible salsa verde! Salsa verde is found in many cultures, generally known as “green sauce”. In most cultures it’s made with a blend of green herbs (one example being chimichurri).
The mexican’s make their green sauce with tomatillos. My only comment is that if you haven’t eaten a tomatillo yet, you have to. It looks like a tomato, but is so much more than that! Infuse a tomato with some lemon and lime and you’ve got a tomatillo!
The second I put a slice of tomatillo in my mouth I knew I had to make a salsa with it. It is packed with so much flavor, you barely have to add anything to it for the perfect salsa.
- 6 Medium-Sized Tomatillos
- 4 cloves Garlic
- 1 White Onion
- 1/4 bunch Cilantro
- 2 jalapenos (optional)
Tomatillos with their husk
Salsa Verde with Tomatillos
- Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut Tomatillos into quarters. Coarsely chop onions.
- Link a baking sheet and evenly lay out tomatillos, onions, jalapenos, and garlic cloves. Let roast until tomatillos are tender, about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and place roasted vegetables and cilantro into a food processor or blender. Blend coarsely and let cool, then serve!
You can obviously use this recipe as a dip for chips, but you can also use with on top of tacos, carnitas, or even eggs!
(everything goes on eggs in my kitchen).
