PREVIOUS: Tomatillo Guacamole Salsa NEXT: Fresh Tomatillo Salsa

Ingredients (6)

  • 1 pound tomatillos, skins removed and cut into small dice
  • 1 medium yellow onion, small dice
  • 2 medium jalapeños, seeds removed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt


This salsa has a fresh flavor that really highlights the tomatillos. It’s delicious on chips but also gives great crunch and freshness to baked dishes, such as our Chiles Rellenos Strata.

Game plan: The salsa will last in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 5 days.
