Salsa Verde is a wonderful green, fresh all-raw tomatillo salsa that is a fantastic topping or condiment for hot dogs.  The zing of the fresh jalapeño chiles adds some heat, combined with the herbiness of the cilantro adds up to a condiment many hot dog lovers don’t want to live without.


  • 1 1/2 pounds tomatillos, husks and stems removed
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño  peppers, stem and seeds removed
  • 1 small white onion, skin removed, cut in quarters
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh line juice (approx. 2 limes)


1. Combine tomatillos, jalapeños, and onion in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce to a simmer. Simmer until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure all sides are tender.

2. Drain vegetables then transfer to a blender. Add cilantro, a large pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Blend on medium speed until a chunky puree is formed, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl, season to taste with more salt or lime juice if necessary, and serve at room temperature. Salsa can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
