Wonderful salsa! It has a fresh, flavorful taste and comes out a beautiful green. We enjoyed both cold with chips and warmed with the olive oil over some enchiladas. Great both ways. Thanks for sharing! Veg*n Swap 29

Awesome, Rita! But I broiled my tomatillas until they were almost black and it gave it a more roasted flavor! Yummy!
