Salsa Verde

salsa verde-4I mentioned Friday that we got a boat load of peppers, a pint of tomatillos, AND a bunch of cilantro in our CSA a couple weeks ago so it’s like the farm was beckoning us to make salsa verde – so we did! Salsa verde is a green sauce or green salsa. You can add as many jalapenos and/or serranos as you’d like to taste. It’s fairly simple to make, here’s how you do it…
