Super Simple Salsa Verde
Recipe Type: Side
Prep Time: 
Total Time: 
Serves: 4
Rather than jalapeno, this recipe utilizes Anaheim chile.
  • A dozen or so tomatillos
  • ½ a red onion
  • De-seeded, pickled Anaheim chile
  • A chopped handful of cilantro
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • A good squeeze of honey (I used alfalfa honey)
  • salt to taste
  1. Chop tomatillos, onion, chile and cilantro – add to blender.
  2. Add honey, salt, and lime juice to blender.
  3. Use the ice/pulse setting to chop and a “poker” (usually a high-quality chopstick in my case) to push down the unchopped chunks in between pulses.
  4. Patience, my friends.
  5. And voila! After 3 minutes or so, you have an amazing, medium/mild salsa verde.
