Naturally green, this salsa verde tastes super refreshing, just as it looks. You may adjust the heat by adding more or fewer chili peppers. 


Units Scale
  • 8 ounces tomatillos
  • 2 Hass avocados
  • 5 serrano peppers
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup white onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, loosely packed
  • 1 cup water or vegetable broth


  1. Place all prepared ingredients in a food processor.. Blend well and serve. 


If you don’t serve it right away, put one of the avocado seeds in the salsa to prevent discoloration.
