Salsa verdes are mild green Mexican salsas made from tomatillos. Roast tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapeno and then puree it with cilantro and lime juice. It’s totally versatile and super easy:

  1. About 1 dozen tomatillos, paper skins removed and halved (or quartered if large). If there is dirt on tomatillos, take a damp cloth and wipe away.
    2 onion, quartered
    4 cloves garlic, whole
    3 jalapenos, cut lengthwise, removing inner seeds
    salt and pepper
    olive oil
    handful cilantro
    juice of 2 limes


    1. Preheat oven to 375.
    2. On a sheet pan, place tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapenos, season with salt and pepper and toss with olive oil.
    3. Roast for about 30 minutes, turning over a few times.
    4. Set aside and allow to cool.
    5. Once cooled, place roasted ingredients in to a food processor and add cilantro and lime juice. Puree until smooth and test to see if you need to add more seasoning. You may need to add a few TBLS of water if sauce is too thick. (It should be the consistency of a pureed salsa).

    This salsa is wonderful alone as a side dish, with traditional red salsa and can be used anywhere you would use the red stuff. I especially love salsa verde with goat cheese enchiladas!
