Fresh Tomatillo Salsa Verde Recipe
If you like your salsa hot and sharp, you will enjoy this recipe for a fresh tomatillo salsa verde (green sauce). It is a very easy to make uncooked salsa. The uncooked tomatillos are quite acidic and when you add 4 serrano chiles, seeds and all, your salsa is gonna pack some punch. The flavor stands up well to grilled beef. We love this salsa with carne asada. It's also a great salsa for grilled chicken.
