Salsa Verde

Jump to Recipe

This is the one recipe that continues to surprise us. We created this salsa verde originally to make a crowd pleasing salsa for a 4th of July party. Day’s following we decided to use the leftover verde as a chicken marinade and were stunned with how delicious it was.

From there this recipe has sky-rocketed. We have added this to fried rice, pizza, steak, and our favorite cheesy chicken salsa verde skillet. This recipe is so simple to make and the ingredients are always available at the store!

Veggies in blender

I love the smell this sauce brings to the kitchen when we are chopping the vegetables and blending the sauce. Even in the dead of winter, it makes me feel like it’s an 85 and sunny day in July. Next thing you know we crack open a few beers or even make some rum punch! Swizzle straws and all.
