Cinco De Mayo is one of the best times of the year to indulge in my passion for Mexican Food non-stop! Seriously, if I was stuck on an island and had to pick one thing to eat for the rest of my life I would be conflicted between steak, hamburgers, pizza and Mexican Food. Can you blame me?
This Salsa Verde is a fun, bright sauce that goes well with all your Mexican favorites. I chop a few things, toss the chunks in the blender and five minutes later have Salsa Verde!
The stuff is delicious about one of the most gorgeous foods you will ever make. Make sure you whip up a batch for Cinco De Mayo this weekend and pop back to let me know how you liked it!
Have a great week guys. Thanks for stopping by to cook with me!
Tools In This Post: This is a blender salsa but you don’t have to have a high end blender to make it. I own this middle of the road KitchenAid version and it works well for all my basics. I love that it comes in lots of fun colors!
