Tomatillo Salsa made in the blender! This easy salsa verde recipe is great with any Mexican food.

Tomatillo Salsa, sometimes called salsa verde, is our favorite. We love the green salsa, the color and the taste! It is full of flavor and so easy to make. For this recipe, you only need 6 ingredients:

  • Tomatillos
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Cilantro
  • Lime Juice
  • Serrano Chiles

Boom! That is it…well, and some salt, but I don’t count that as an ingredient because everyone has salt, right? Don’t forget the salt though because it really makes the salsa pop! It’s amazing what a little salt will do:)

  9. I recently enjoyed some tomatillo salsa in a local restaurant and today I decided to give it a try, making it that is. I found your recipe online it sounded easy enough so
    I went to the local market and picked up the ingredients suggested in your recipe.
    Upon returning home I began the step by step process you so graciously laid out. Long story short the finished product was awesome. I may rename it Tom~atillo Salsa Tom being my name is my justification.
    My friends were quite impressed and after I divulged the source of the recipe I can say for certain that you picked up 8 new fans.
    Thank you!

  10. I’ve been looking for a recipe for restaurant-style salsa verde, and this is it! My dream come true. the only thing that’d make it better is a Vitamix, the premier food machine in the world!

  11. I purchased all the ingredients to make this today. I’m curious if anyone can tell me the difference between this and salsa verde? Is there a taste difference in the raw salsa vs cooked?
