Salsa verde is one of my favourite foods and a variation that is really good is with the addition avocado! I am a huge fan of avocado and it adds a really nice creaminess to the salsa verde! The salsa is very easy to make where you simply roast tomatillos, garlic, onion and jalapenos before pureeing them with the remaining ingredients until the desired consistency is reached. All said and told you can make this tasty avocado salsa verde and be enjoying it in less than 15 minutes!
