“Classic and easy salsa verde that can be thrown together quite quickly. Great for cooking as well as dipping. Don't mistake the ease of the recipe for lack of flavor, as real spice lovers will appreciate the simplicity in taste! I am VERY generous with cilantro and also like to keep many of the seeds. Hope you enjoy! Yield is approximate.”
