F.A.Q.

Salsa verde has endless variations within the green spectrum. So depending on what’s in the salsa verde we can use to liven up all kind of dishes that has some sort of meat or protein. Don’t try it with desserts though.

Sort of yes but it goes more like this: All tomatillo salsas are salsa verdes but not all salsa verdes are tomatillo salsas.

Don’t add any water to it and there won’t be much need to thicken it. Extra virgin olive oil has the ability to bind with liquids in the food processor much like when we are making mayo. If we have already added too much water and want to save our salsa verde we can always add a bit of corn starch or flour to our sauce.

As it is with anything that isn’t cooked but simply chopped up and put in the fridge, somewhere between a week and smells / tastes funny.
