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:)

    I made this last night alongside guacamole and chips. It was amazing–and the vibrant green color is to-die-for. Thank you!

  3. Our family uses a blender multiple times a day and another one would make it even easier to eat healthfully! Thanks!

  4. We have a bunch of tomatillos sitting in the fridge right now begging to be turned into this salsa!! A vitamix sure would make it easier! 🙂

  5. Living in our basement “apartment” while house “reno” is going on. A blender and yummy recipes like the salsa would make our lives easier!!

  6. Yum!

    Btw, I’m reeling a little big right now because I just learned that one of my favorite quick, local restaurants is closing in a month or two — and it’s called, coincidentally enough, La Salsa! 🙁

  7. Oh my gosh that salsa looks fantastic! I don’t know why I’ve always shied away from buying tomatillos, these looks so easy! 

  8. I have wanted a vitamix  for SO long!!! That salsa looks delicious and I always enjoy your recipes. Thank you for sharing so many great ideas.

    This looks really good. I’ve cooked with tomatillos only once and it turned out great (it was a soup). I need to explore more recipes for them.

  10. Yes! Now I finally know what to do with the tomatillos in my garden that are producing  like mad. Thanks for sharing!
