One of my most favorite snacks is Salsa Verde!! It's sooo low in calories, only 25 calories per serving. This recipe makes about 10 servings (very generous). When you eat it, it almost feels like a guilty pleasure, it's so tasty and so addictive. I put it on meat or chicken or even use raw veg like peppers and dip and scoop it! If you AREN't Paloe and eat Tostitos, the lime ones are AMAZING with my Salsa Verde. It's fast and easy to make and sure to be a hit!
8 medium/Large Tomatillos
3 raw Jalapeno
1/3 a medium Sweet Onion
1 cup cilantro raw
2 tbsp Agave
1 tsp of salt
Peel and slice your Tomatillos. You do want to wash them after you peel them if you have never worked with them before because they can be sticky from the skin leaves on them. Next lay them cut side down on a foil lined cookie sheet....
Slice your jalapenos the long way and take out the seeds. put them along the cookie sheet as well with the tomatillo
Turn on your broiler in the oven and broil them until they start to char on the top and get soft. usually about 5-10 minutes (keep an eye on them). The end result will look like this...
Toss in your :
Cup of diced Cilantro
Half of sweet onion (I personally just cut it in big chunks because the ninja will do the job for you)
and squeeze the two limes into the blender like so...I also use a fork.. You stick the fork in the half of lime and squeeze and twist..it helps get the most juice out (random tip if you didnt know).
I also put in Agave. I like to keep things sugar free and paleo the best I can but if you eat sugar you can substitute the agave for white granulated sugar.
Peace love and Paleo!
