Healthy Homemade Salsa Verde

This Salsa Verde, or know as the green salsa that you’re obsessed with at your local Mexican restaurant but never really knew what was in it, is packed full of flavor. I like to keep a jar of this salsa on hand at all times which is easy since it’s super easy to whip up. There’s a few different ways to prepare salsa verde but I like to broil the tomatillos, onion, and jalapeños until lightly charred for some extra flavor.

After that a quick whirl in your blender is all that stands in the way of you pouring this onto everything you eat.
