Salsa Verde

Our first batch of salsa verde was from a few years back when there was a bumper crop of tomatillos at the farm – most of them made their way into a gigantic batch of pickles. Salsa verde is one of the main things we’ve made with them since then. It’s great as a condiment in its own right, but also makes a tasty addition salads among other things!

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 681g tomatillos (pickled) (1 1/2 lb)
