Make it at Home: Salsa Verde

Salsa is a staple at Dreams Resorts & Spas. Our guests love to dip tortilla chips in it as an afternoon snack or dinner appetizer, and they also love putting it on their tacos or in their fajitas. If you’re planning a Mexican feast at home in the near future, you’ll want to ensure you know how to make one of our most delicious salsas–salsa verde–for your guests. We guarantee they’ll love it!

Salsa Verde


  • 1 1/2 lb tomatillos
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onions
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 Jalapeño peppers OR 2 serrano peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
  • Salt to taste

What to do:

Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well.

Cut in half and place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for about 5-7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.

Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, chili peppers, sugar in a food processor (or blender) and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season to taste with salt. Cool in refrigerator.
