Salsa Verde, Delicious!

Fresh salsa is the best, it’s the highlight of any trip to our local Mexican restaurant. Since it’s Cinco De Mayo tomorrow, I wanted to make a homemade version of salsa verde and serve it with our dinner. The recipe is simple! I roasted tomatillos and a jalapeño in our air fryer/toaster oven but you can also roast them in a regular oven. I used red onion but you can use white onion too.

It was my first time buying tomatillos, if you haven’t seen them before they look kind of like small green tomatoes. I found them at our local farmers market but they should also have them at your nearby grocery store!

Tomatillos are husked and rinsed. Placed on a foil lined baking sheet with a halved jalapeño. Top was removed from jalapeño and also some seeds.
Roasted for 12 mins! Yum!
Diced up red onion, peeled garlic cloves and rinsed and plucked cilantro leaves.
Added all ingredients to blender and blended until smooth.
Best salsa verde ever! Served with tortilla chips and on top of our chicken tacos.
