Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



Let’s be honest, salsas are awesome. Some may even say they are the perfect snack. Well, maybe I just think they are the perfect snack. I think that is reason enough though don’t you think? They are fresh, crisp and refreshing: perfect for a hot Summer day. We go through them like water around here, and it can definitely get expensive after a while! This is why making your own salsa is the way to go. There are so many ways to go: fruit, veggie…fruit and veggie. You can leave them chunky, or blend the crap out of them. You get the picture. Salsa verde is one of my personal faves and we totally don’t make it enough, so I decided to take a stab at it today. The tomatillos looked fabulous at the market today. At this point, I was 100% sold. This salsa combines roasted tomatillos, a whole head of roasted garlic (yup, that’s right: a whole head), cilantro, jalapeños, and a dash of salt and pepper. That’s really it. Are you on board yet? I certainly hope so! It’s worth it. The work is worth it. The beer pairing is worth it. There really are no excuses!








Guess what! The beer pairing is my favorite part about this recipe! This is nothing new though. Beer often inspires the recipes, instead of the other way around. I love saisons, and anytime that I’m at a brewery and they have a saison, I immediately have to try it. It’s such a great style of beer and is perfect for hot Summer days. Funkwerks is awesome. Located in Fort Collins, CO, they never ever disappoint. They make an INCREDIBLE saison. It’s won almost every award in the book and it has the perfect hints of citrus and bitterness. It pairs so perfectly with salsa, especially this one. Give it a try. You will totally not be disappointed.

Oh and guess what:



Yeah, I didn’t think I had to explain either =).

So I apologize for my absence earlier in the week. Zach and I (and a good friend of ours) were out in the backcountry without any connection to the outside world for a couple of days. I was sad about this, as I’m sure you were also =). I’m back now though and have some great recipes heading your way this weekend. *cough cough* pretzel bites smoothered in cinnamon and sugar *cough cough*

I know, the anticipation is killing me also.

That’s all for today folks. See you tomorrow!
