salsa verde.

love, love, LOVE this salsa.  i’ve probably already posted this recipe, but i wanted to post it again as a key component to an AMAZING soup that i will share with you very soon.  but this salsa is so good on its own, of course.

salsa verde (or tomatillo salsa) preheat oven to 400.

place the following on a sheet pan: 10 or 12 tomatillos, a white onion quartered, one poblano pepper left whole, and 3 cloves garlic.  toss with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  pop in the oven for 20 minutes.

like so…


(that red pepper is for another salsa ~ the pico de gallo i also made that day!)

while that’s roasting, dice up some fresh radishes and fresh cilantro.

after the roasting goodies are done, let cool a few minutes.  cut the stem and seeds away from the poblano pepper.

throw it all into a blender and add the cilantro, some lime juice, and more salt and pepper if needed.

garnish with radishes.

et voila!


i love the subtle colors, but the not-so-subtle flavors!

stay tuned for the most glorious soup that uses this salsa as a base!!!
