Salsa verde recipe

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

This is a super-easy salsa recipe great for those who are tomato overloaded, as the taste is distinctively different. A member of the nightshade family, tomatillos have much more of a tart flavor as compared to their other nightshade relatives (tomatoes in particular).


  • 1 pound (450 g) tomatillos, husked and rinsed
  • 1 white onion, cut into large chunks
  • 1 jalapeño, roughly chopped
  • 1 lime juice
  • ½ cup (13 g) cilantro
  • salt to taste
How to Make It
  1. Preheat oven broiler and line a sheet pan (cookie sheet) with aluminum foil.
  2. Cut tomatillos in half, and place tomatillos and onions on sheet pan in oven. Broil for 5–7 minutes or until slightly charred.
  3. Place tomatillos and onions in food processor along with the jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro, and salt.
  4. Pulse until salsa is desired consistency (you can add water if you like a slightly runnier salsa and yours is too thick).
