My sister inspired me to make a green salsa similar to how you would make one by roasting tomatillos, but using all green tomatoes instead. This is a tangy and fresh tasting salsa using fresh lime juice and cilantro. Change the peppers and spices to your liking! Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for chicken or fish.

Instructions Checklist

  • Place green tomatoes, onion, jalapeno peppers, bell pepper, and garlic on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until vegetables start to char, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes.

  • Transfer roasted vegetables to a blender or food processor. Add cilantro, lime juice, kosher salt, cumin, and black pepper. Process until well blended. Chill until serving.

Cook's Note:

When blending, I add an extra fresh jalapeno with seeds because we like it spicy. I used a green bell pepper to keep all the color bright green. It is very tasty with a red bell pepper, though.
