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:)

Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

To make the salsa, you put all of the ingredients in the blender and blend! It’s sooooo easy! Blender salsa is the best! The bright green color is so vibrant! You will love it! Serve the tomatillo salsa with tortilla chips, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, taquitos, enchiladas, tostadas, use it as a dressing for taco salads or burrito bowls…the options are endless!

  1. We love tomatillo salsa! It is so fresh tasting and the ultimate summer recipe. We are growing tomatillos this year, and the vitamix would be perfect for making this salsa.

  2. I’ve always been in awe of a Vitamix and would absolutely love to win one of my own! It looks like the ultimate kitchen tool with the ability to replace so many items! 


  3. The salsa looks great. I need help making stock. The book sounds very helpful. Thanks for the chance to win.

  6. So excited to try this! It is my first year growing tomatillos and I have so many little starts I was panicking trying to come up with recipes!

  7. This looks so tasty! Would love to try this and other Two Peas & Their Pod recipes with the Vitamix Blender!!

    1. I haven’t tried it. It might make the tortillas a little soggy, but I am not sure. It has a nice texture. I will have to try it. It is for sure great for topping enchiladas!

  10. What a beautiful color! I’ll have to try this recipe. And thanks for the chance to win — my (20+ year old, hand-me-down) blender actually just broke this week.

  11. Funny, green salsa was always something I avoided–I didn’t know what was in it. Aha! It’s all stuff I like, so now I’m going to make it and expand my salsa love. Thank you!

  12. This looks delicious!  I’m sure a homemade version of this would be so much better than store bought!

  13. I love tomatillo salsa! Looks like a great recipe. And I’m in desperate need of a new blender! The threads are stripped on mine so it won’t spin.

  58. This recipe looks super easy and super delicious – making it this weekend for the cabin!! Thanks for sharing!

  80. It’s extremely hot here in Michigan and I think that recipe would lighten up the atmosphere. It looks so amazingly fresh and appetizing.  Most definitely trying it out!

  107. Yum, looks delicious! Definitely going to try this out. I’ve made a roasted version before, but I love the bright green color of this one!

  108. I just made your Chickpea, Avocado and Feta salad yesterday and it had to be one of the most delicious things I have ever had! Thanks for the wonderful and very doable recipes!!  You are so inspiring!

  129. I am obsessed with your blog and the This and That emails every Thursday. I read them every week! I feel like we are friends. Thanks for the great job you do on this site. Lovely work. I can’t wait to make this salsa.

  130. I would LOVE a copy of this book. Even if I don’t win I will try and find it online. Side note, your recipes are spot on and foolproof. Thank you so much. I have used your recipes many times but my fav is the chickpea guacamole. I spread it on toast and use it for tacos. 

  131. This looks yummy! Can’t wait to make it and add it to my list of favorite recipes that I have gotten from you!

  132. Dear Two Peas, I have followed you from the beginning. You always have fresh and inviting recipes and posts. Very sweet family. Thank you.

  134. I’ve only recently realized that I like tomatillos, so I’m excited to try this. What a wonderful giveaway!

  135. I just copied the recipe, now if I can find the tomotillos. Thanks for the great giveaway.. Love to own a wonderful blender like the Vitamix. Thanks.

  136. Your recipes are no-fail. I cannot wait to try this. And a Vitamix? I’ve had my eye on one for nearly a decade.

  137. I love making homemade salsa and I’ve never tried tomatillo, looks so fresh and vibrant! Being in a cooking rut lately, the cookbook and vitamix would be an amazing to have in my kitchen!

  138. I was just looking at blenders at Target because mine died, so I could use a new one–a Vitamix!!!!! And my daughter needs the cookbook (but only after I read it and try out a few recipes first!)

  139. Love tomatillo salsa – really any green Mexican sauce! I am redoing my kitchen and can’t wait to get back to cooking. I am actually planning a big Mexican feast to thank all the friends who helped us with the construction. This will be a perfect addition. Thanks for the recipe!!

  140. I would love to try this recipe! It sounds delish and a lot different from regular salsa. Thank you for the giveaway!

  141. I love  your site! You have the most delicious recipes – even things I don’t particularly like look amazing! I would love to win the Vitamix/ cookbook! I would definitely make the Tomatillo Salsa with it!

  142. I’m not a fan of cilantro…I know, I know…would you still try this recipe if I didn’t add it? And maybe parlsey instead?

    **T H A N K S ** for the giveaways! Good Luck to ME!!!

    1. The cilantro is a big part of the recipe, I honestly think it needs it. If you really hate it, you can try parsley, but it will give it a completely different taste. I have only tried it with cilantro.

  143. I have never worked with tomatillos, so I am excited to try this salsa! Looks so fresh and tasty! Thanks, Maria!

  144. I’m SO glad you posted this! My husband grew tomatillos for the first time this year and I’ve been trying to find different recipes to use. I will definitely give this one a shot. Thank you!

  145. This recipe sounds amazing! I’ve always preferred Salsa Verde over the red variety! This Tomatillo Salsa looks so easy to prepare…you don’t even have to roast the Tomatillo’s 🙂 I’ll be making this as soon as I possibly can!! Thanks for sharing!

  146. OMG….the VITAMIX and cookbook look AMAZING. PLEASE sign me up for the contest!  WOULD LOVE TO TRY THIS RECIPE, I bet the Vitamix would be a helpful tool for canning.

  147. Perfect timing! I’m going to a Mexican themed fiesta on Sunday and now I know what I’ll be bringing. Thanks for all your great recipes and the chance at the blender and cookbook!

  148. I love all the plant based recipes you’ve been posting lately. Recently had to give up meat, dairy and sugar for health reasons. Can’t wait to try out this salsa! Thanks for the chance to win!

  149. I have had my eye on a Vitamix for years! My fav foods are Tex-mex so I am sure I’d love that healthy green salsa!


  150. This is my favorite salsa! Looks a lot more uniform using your vitamix compared to my blender!! I could literally drink this stuff! (It’d have a lot less carbs that way than the bag of tortilla chips I normally eat this with!) 🙂

  151. Looks so fresh and tasty! I used to live in Texas and am now in the PNW. Hard to get authentic and good Mexican food around here. My husband and I make it ourselves, even fresh flour tortillas! This will be a perfect addition to our repertoire! Thanks, Maria…we have made many of your recipes and they are always fantastic!

  152. I eat salsa several times a week – accompanied by hummus and tortilla chips, yum!
    Not only am I salsa loving human, I am a smoothie making machine.  Oh and I have an old blender with a mismatched replacement pitcher.
    So as you can clearly see, I would so appreciate this giveaway!

  153. That salsa looks amazing, what a gorgeous color!! All I need are the tomatillos and peppers to make it. Maybe this weekend! Also, I have been wanting a Vitamix for so long. I’m still using an ancient blender that JUST WON’T DIE, but it’s not the best at blending things up well…still some chunks. I would be over the top excited to win one!

  154. We’re making tacos for dinner tonight… wish I had the ingredients on hand to make your tomatillo salsa tonight! Thanks for the chance to win a Vitamix – that would be awesome!

  155. I have been eying the Vitamix but haven’t been brave enough to go for it. It would be so great to win one. Thank you for doing this giveaway.

  156. I currently only have a single serve blender – not big enough to make salsa! I need this vitamin blender!!!

  157. Making this salsa this weekend! I will add a little more jalapeños . They will go well with some adult beverages!!

  158. This salsa looks incredible and would be so easy to make in a brand spankin’ new Vitamix! I’m usually more of a red sauce girl, but this salsas got me thinking that I’m open to change! 

    Thanks for this!

  159. We planted a Tomatillo plant for the first time this summer! I love them and can’t wait to try this recipe with them! Yum! Thanks for sharing it!

  160. I just received the Haven’s kitchen cooking school to give to my daughter.. now that I browsed through it I can tell that I, even after many years of cooking would also enjoy it!! AND WHO WOULDN’T LOVE A VITAMIX!!

  161. I love to try out new recipes and may go broke from buying g cookbooks.  I sure could use a Vitamix for execution!!


  162. Great recipe! This one is great! Can you tell that I really, really liked it?
    I love the color. I love the warmth (especially in my mouth since I live in north Idaho).
    I’m bringing this salsa to my next party/potluck! Thank you!
    Oh, and I would love a Vitamix…. I would love to be lucky!

  163. Would love to win a Vitamix!!!! 
    A great way to improve health with smoothies and smoothie bowls. 
    Hadn’t thought about salsa making. Thanks for another great recipe!

  164. What a perfect summer recipe! Plan to make it tonight, although it would probably taste even better if I used a vitamix to blend it

  165. My Mom would love this salsa! She loves spicy anything and may actually make it with it all being in the blender.

  166. Can’t wait to make this. I usually chop everything up and then my fingers sting the chilis and of course I forget I have residual and at some point touch my eye! I can’t wait to try on chicken and fish!

  167. Thank you so much ! Would love to make this with a new blender !

    Your vegan recipes are great, thanks again!

  168. An enjoyable, colorful and easy salsa –so versatile! I appreciate the cookbook/Vitamix giveaway –great resources and tools to enhance anyone’s joy in the kitchen!

  169. Like two seconds before I read this I said to my sister “I need a new blender so I can make salsa” I hope I win! 

  170. Great timing for this post. I recently returned from a Mexico City and have been missing the amazing street food. Salsa Verde was on my list to make!

  171. Years ago, when my husband and I were just out of college and had no money, a good friend of ours bought a Vitamixer. We made so much fun of him for wasting his money, but now in a different place in our lives, with a house and a family of four, our blender gets used much more frequently and the idea of spending that much money on a blender seems a little more justified.

  172. #1 – That salsa looks and sounds amazing! Def want to try it!
    #2 – Wouldn’t love to have a Vitamix! It would be great for all of the fruit-base ice pops we make!


  173. Salsa verde is my favorite! I bet it would taste even more delicious made in a Vitamx, especially when you can say you won it from Two Peas & Their Pod! Thanks for posting simple delicious recipes!

  174. I know several people who can’t stand cilantro, what would be a good substitute for cilantro in this recipe?

  175. I want to make this recipe..but have not! I most certainly want to win a cookbook and vitamix!! I LOVE salsa!! Not like, LOVE!!! And hot! I love a habanero!


  176. So so so so so good! Made it with your https://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/mango-black-bean-quesadillas/.
    Love all your clever ideas!
    And thanks again for the SLC foodie tips. 
    I am called the sauce boss to my friends and a vitamix would really seal the deal!

  177. Love how easy this recipe is. I can’t wait to try it out. The cookbook and blender would be amazing to win. 

  178. I’ve been trying different smoothie recipes (I’m currently dairy free for my 4 month old)  that don’t work in my cheapy blender but can’t afford a vitamix right now. I would love to win one! I’ve been dreaming about a  vitamix for some time and all the soup/smoothie/hummus/salsa recipes I could make with it!

  179. I love tomatillo salsa! This recipe looks wonderful!
    Having a Vitamix Blender and the cookbook would make this even easier for me to make!

  180. Fantastic giveaway! It would be so much fun trying the recipes in the Vitamix. Thanks for the chance to win!

  181. Recipe looks easy to make. Especially if I’m using the Vitamix Blender! Can’t wait to try the recipe! Salsas, fresh, are the best snack!

  182. Oh my goodness! How generous of you! The Vitamix is my absolute favorite kitchen tool! To have one of my very own would be dreamy!! ❤️

  183. I love to make salsa, but have had to use my immersion blender. It would be great to finally have a vitamix! I will try this recipe because it doesn’t require cooking the ingredients first. Thanks for having this contest.

  184. I love salsa but I’ve never seen a green salsa that isn’t cooked in some way before. It looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it…

  185. We love tomatilla anything!! Our Vitamix is several years old so it would be amazing to win this newer version – we use it every day so it would probably be a good idea! We love your chocolate banana bread and made it several times. Just made the chocolate zucchini bread and can’t wait to eat it! One of my favorite recipes is your Raspberry Almond Scones – to die for!!!

  186. I love this recipe and your blog! The color of this salsa is so pretty–I can’t wait to make it for a BBQ this weekend. 

  187. I usually roast my  tomatillos, garlic, shallots, etc and then blend them. However, this recipe  is much quicker and very fresh looking! So vibrant. I am willing to try new recipes and think I will try this way of making the salsa. Of course, the blender would make that much more doable!


  188. This. Is just the right timing. Made this tonight for our grilled fish taco dinner. Sooo good and sooo easy to make.

  194. I stopped at the store on my way home from work to grab the ingredients because I could not wait! Added a few avocados and drizzled over salmon with some cauliflower rice. I plan on putting this on everything for the next few weeks (okay, maybe not my oatmeal). Love all of your posts; thank you for the new recipe! 

  195. They say we eat with our eyes, and this fresh tomatillo salsa sure looks amazing! Can’t wait to try the recipe!

  215. I LOVE the idea of a cooking school cookbook! I would love to really learn those skills that would allow me to cook more on my own without a recipe!

  216. This looks great! I had raw tomatillos & was so shocked at the bitter sourness of them. They really need to be jazzed up.

  217. This salsa is tagged as the first recipe I will make when my tomatillos are ready to harvest!  Would love the Vitamix as well! 

  218. I actually had tomatillos for the first time last week! We subscribed to a meal delivery box and that was one of the sides, a tomatillo salsa, it was really good, I will have to try your recipe next time!


  219. I love tomatillo salsa!  I like to smoke my ingredients for a couple hours before blending them. It adds a whole new dimension!

  220. Now I have to make taco salad with this salsa verde recipe! It looks so fresh and my cilantro is ready for cutting! Thank you for posting
