Green salsa, or salsa verde, has always had a certain appeal to me. I'm not sure if it was originally the whole green thing and being different than your more typical red salsas. Then I got hooked on the taste. Since you're using tomatillos instead of the usual red tomatoes, you get a bit of the tart/tangy flavor as well. One other thing I noticed about tomatillo salsa verde - it's got fewer ingredients than most red salsas and it's usually served in a more "sauce-like" consistency. Now, as far as actually making the green salsa, you can cook the tomatillos just about any way you'd like. I opted for pan roasting because roasting brings all the flavors to the yard, and pan roasting instead of oven/broiler roasting since it's summer (or it was when I made this salsa!), and I didn't feel like roasting in my own juices. Grilling is another option for some nice additional flavor. Of course, boiling/steaming are also viable options. We ate most of this salsa verde with scrambled eggs or chips. You could also use it as more of a sauce on tacos, burritos, quesadillas, taquitos, or make some green eggs and ham!

What's your favorite way to eat salsa verde?
