Description

Fresh Tomatillo Salsa Recipe! (aka Salsa Verde) A FRESH vibrant recipe for Tomatillo Salsa using raw tomatillos, resulting in the most vibrant flavor. Serve this with chips, Fish Tacos, quesadillas or as a sauce for enchiladas!


Ingredients

  • 1 lb Tomatillos, husked, rinsed ( in warm water)  and quartered
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro- leaves and tender stems OK ( 1 cup, packed)
  • 12 jalapeno (or more, for more spicy) or 12 serano chilis ( I like 2 seranos)
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1/3 cup diced white or yellow onion
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice plus more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½  teaspoon sugar ( or agave or honey)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 T olive oil (optional)

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until uniformly combined.

Taste, then adjust salt, heat and lime. ( I find it helpful to taste with a chip, or whatever you are serving this with.)

Refrigerate until serving.


Notes

This fresh tomatillo salsa will keep 4 days in the fridge.

If you like extra heat, serrano chilies are a great option.

If it ends up too spicy for your taste,  you can temper it by adding cucumber or more tomatillo. Re-adjust with salt and lime.
