Salsa Verde

This weekend I tried out the Mexican basket from Bountiful Baskets and loved the fun foods included. I had a bunch of tomatillos in it (they look like small green tomatoes) and wanted to make a great salsa verde. I looked through several recipes and with lots of tweeking I came up with one that we loved.

Salsa Verde


  • 10 tomatillos roasted
  • 1 large green onion
  • Large bunch of cilantro leaves
  • Juice of one small lime
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 Jalapeno peppers roasted
  • 1 Anaheim pepper roasted
  • 2 roasted garlic cloves
  • Salt to taste


1 Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Cut in half and place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for about 7-10 minutes to lightly blacken the skin. Slice jalapenos and Anaheim in half and roast as well. Roast garlic in husk.

2 Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, peppers, garlic, and sugar in a food processor (or blender) and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season to taste with salt. Cool in refrigerator.

Serve with chips or as a salsa accompaniment to Mexican dishes.
