Homemade salsa verde

Sunday was an absolute lazy day.
But one thing that did get accomplished was putting all that new produce to good use.

Have you ever tried Salsa Verde {from TJs?} Last year one of my favorite snacks was carrots with that cool tasting salsa.


We made our own, & it tasted just like trader joes with a little more spice to it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Fresh garlic cloves {5 cloves}
  • Onions {2} peeled + chopped
  • Long hots {2} chopped + seeds removed
  • Tomato {1} cut length wise
  • 3-4 table spoons of olive oil
  • Bunch of cilantro
  • Small handful of fresh basil
  • 1 to 1 1/2 of fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt

>> Place garlic, onions, long hots + tomato into the blender
>> Then add the olive oil, cilantro, basil, lime juice + salt
>> Pulse together until all ingredients have meshed well together


Serve with:  carrots, bell peppers, top homemade tacos or it goes perfect with tortilla chips & a corona : )


It’s sweet, salty & has a nice kick!
