Salsa verde without cilantro?

sjahns | | Dec 29, 2012 05:08 AM

Hi all,

Yesterday I made about 7 dozen spicy pork tamales. I already made red chile sauce but I LOVE salsa verde-one problem- I am one of those "soapy.metallic taste" cilantro haters. I just can't get past it, I can't stand the taste. I know it won't be "authentic" but I'm just looking for it to be good. Can I make a standard salsa verde without cilantro? Just omit from the ingredients.

It will be my first time trying to make it at home. I have the tomatillos (fresh) onion, jalapenos (no Serrano around here right now) a lime and some garlic if needed (recipe calls for it.)
Also if anyone would like to chime in, should I just remove the husks from the tomatillos, cut in half and roast in the oven or is boiling better? Or both?
