Hello & Happy Tuesday!!

 

 

 

I’m being honest when I say that I actually made this recipe nearly 6 months ago. I kept forgetting to share this recipe and also felt as though.. I wasn’t sure if I made it the “traditional” way lol. 

 

Although many roast the salsa verde, giving off a more dark green color and smokey flavor.. 

 

This version is the freshest of the fresh and takes minutes to put together.

I really enjoyed this quick and fresh version that I could literally eat it by the bowlfuls with homemade chips or some vegan tacos!!

 

If you love a salsa verde at restaurants, but have never explored making it yourself.. 

 

You have to try this seamless recipe as I find that it’s more fun to make than my traditional oven roasted salsa, takes minutes, and tastes way better!!

 

(and I love salsa, so that’s a bold statement)
