Fresh Green Salsa

May4

Don't wait for Cinco de Mayo to enjoy this delicious tomatillo-based Fresh Green Salsa. Great with scrambled eggs, grilled meat and even on Mac and Cheese!

Salsas are one of the saviors of the kitchen.

Baptize anything in a little salsa and you’ll up the flavor quotient and make it sing… as well as help stretch a meal. Fresh Green Salsa (also known as salsa verde) and leftover ground beef make a great taco filling. Eggs, salsa and cheese: Breakfast of Champions.

Fresh Green Salsa  is my favorite cooked salsa because the tomatillos (also called husk tomatoes) have such a distinctive flavor. The citrus balances the sharp bite of the Serrano or jalapeño chili peppers and the herbal, grassy flavor of the cilantro.

This recipe makes a big batch… share it, freeze it or grab a big bag of chips and park yourself in front of television! Kidding. Not kidding.
