MINNEAPOLIS, Minn — I love salsa year round, but there's something about making it from fresh local produce. It tastes so much better! I’m on Week Five of my CSA at Untiedt's Vegetable Farm out of Waverly, Minnesota, and I’m beyond impressed with the spread of fresh local produce. Each week on KARE in the Kitchen, I make something from my CSA. 

Last week I made spicy refrigerator pickles and they turned out great! This week I whipped up Tomatillo Salsa Verde and it's packing some major heat!


  • 1/2 white onion
  • 5-8 tomatillos
  • 2 medium jalapenos
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • Ground salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut up the onion, tomatillos and jalapenos in large chunks and place on a baking sheet. Add cloves of garlic (with skin still on), drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Throw in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until soft or golden brown.

Remove garlic skin and place everything in a blender with cilantro and squeeze lime into blender. Blend until smooth and refrigerate! ENJOY!
