In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Salsa Verde. This sauce will be used as a dip in the next video posted in bettyskitchen.


9 medium-sized tomatillos, husks removed and discarded (Rinse tomatillos and dry with paper towel.)
½ small onion
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons lime juice
½ teaspoon additional coarse sea salt (I used 1 teaspoon additional coarse sea salt in the video, but the Salsa Verde was saltier than I liked.)
sprigs of fresh cilantro, for garnish

Place 9 medium-sized tomatillos, ½ small onion, and 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt in a medium-sized pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender.

Drain and cool to room temperature. Place cooked tomatillos and onion in bowl of blender. Add ¼ cup fresh cilantro, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and ½ teaspoon coarse sea salt. Put lid on blender and pulse about 10 to 20 seconds, until mixture is still slightly chunky.

Pour into a nice serving bowl, garnish with sprigs of fresh cilantro, and serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve. This Salsa Verde is delicious as an accompaniment for many dishes, from French fries to tacos! I hope you enjoy it! –Betty
