This fresh easy salsa verde recipe takes minutes to pull together in two basic steps and it puts its bottled versions to shame. It’s a real crowd pleaser for your next informal gathering, among other uses.
1.5 lbs of tomatillos- look for small and uniform size to make broiling easier
1-2 jalapeno peppers finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup of chopped cilantro, or 1 teaspoon dried
Salt to taste
1. Pre-heat the broiler. Slice the tomatillos in half and place in roasting pan (see photo). Broil 4-7 minutes (depends on your broiler).
2. Put all the ingredients in a blender and puree.
Voila! Green salsa will last about a week in the fridge stored in a sealed glass container, and can be used in a burrito or on top, as a dip with chips, and as an accent flavor with fish, pork, and stir-fry’s.
