When warmer weather arrives, we’re suckers for the classic combination of chips and salsa. This vibrant, roasted salsa verde is the perfect companion to crispy tortilla chips, tacos, enchiladas, salads, and beyond!

We trialed a raw version (hoping the raw would work for an easy, heat-free option), but it didn’t quite compare to the smoky depth of flavor we achieved with the roasted version. It’s well worth the little bit of extra effort!
