Salsa Verde ☆ How to Make Green Salsa

Salsa verde is a green salsa sauce with a refreshing sharpness and spicy taste. It can be made very easily in a blender.

Ingredients: 6 servings

6 medium
Jalapeño peppers
1 clove
Cilantro (optional)
as much as you like
a small amount
Boiled water
as much as desired (I use 3 tablespoons)


1. These are tomatillos. They're similar to Chinese lantern plants, like green tomatoes concealed within a thin, dry shell. Peel this shell away and wash the tomatillos.
2. This green chili pepper is a jalapeño pepper. Remove the stem.
3. Cut the onion and tomatillos into chunks. Peel the garlic.
4. Combine all of the vegetables in a blender along with the cilantro, if you're adding it. For those who like cilantro, use about 5 stems.
5. Blend the vegetables into a paste and season with salt to taste. Gradually add the boiled water until you reach your preferred consistency.
6. Once you have reached your desired consistency and flavor, give the mixture anther quick whiz in the blender.
7. The salsa is ready. Serve it with your favourite dishes. It goes great with tacos, burritos, tortillas, fish or meat dishes, and salads.
8. I had mine on some tacos.
9. This salsa tastes fresh just after you've made it, but it's also delicious the next day after the flavours have blended.
