Tomatillos and cilantro are bursting out of my CSA, along with carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, and celery! It may sound complicated to make salsa verde but it couldn’t be simpler: broil up some tomatillos and blend with a few other ingredients. Serve it with all those farm fresh veggies for the ultimate appetizer, or use it to make a One Pan Salsa Verde Chicken and Rice dish, in some enchiladas or scooped up with some tortillas.

Ingredients Needed

  • Ripe Tomatillos
  • Jalapeño
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • Pinch sea salt
