Salsa Verde

Alright guys! Today I have my favorite authentic salsa verde recipe on the blog. I hope you guys love it! It is simple, spicy, and a little tart. This authentic salsa recipe has been a family secret for a while (I got this recipe from my Dad who's from Mexico) but I'm excited to share it with you today.

If you've never had a truly authentic salsa verde then I should probably let you know that it's not really a chips and salsa kind of salsa (although you can definitely eat it that way too). This is more the kind of salsa you would add to an already delicious meal. My favorite way to eat this is by putting it on top of taquitos or picaditas, but you could really have it on anything. Enjoy!

  1. I'm a huge salsa verde fan, but have always used store bought. Can't wait to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing at the This Is How We Roll Link Party on Organized 31.

    1. I haven't tried store bought, so I hope this recipe doesn't disappoint! It is one of my favorites though =) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Yum! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday, hope to see you again next week!

  3. This is a great recipe for salsa verde. I have never found a store bought version that even comes close. I've made it many times and it is always better than even the best mexican restaurants.
