How To Make salsa verde
1In a large bowl, we’ll add all the vegetables including “unpeeled” garlic cloves and add oil. Gently toss the ingredients until nicely coated – if it needs more, add a little.
2When the BBQ temperature reaches between 350ºF to 400ºF, transfer veggies to a grill basket. For the tomatillos, place them flesh side down. Close the lid and grill for 5 minutes.
3Flip the veggies especially the tomatillos, close the lid and continue grilling for another 15 minutes
4When time is up, transfer the tomatillos to a bowl, flip the other veggies, close the lid and grill for another 15 minutes.
5After 15 minutes, some vegetables might be soft and charred therefore transfer them to the bowl along with the tomatillos. Continue grilling until they’re all done – it takes about 1:20 hrs.
6Transfer charred veggies to the bowl of a food processor; remove the paper from the garlic.
7Add sugar, cumin, salt, black pepper, lime juice, and cilantro. Process until the ingredients are well combined, cleaning the sides of the bowl – don’t overdo it. Taste and adjust if necessary.
8Pour salsa to a bowl, cover and chill for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
