Salsa verde can be made with just tomatillos, just green tomatoes or a mixture of both. They are in the same plant family, have a similar consistency and similar taste. We used about 1/4 of our green tomatoes to make a whopper batch of salsa verde and still have well over 100 pounds of tomatoes sitting in the mud room slowly ripening (if you missed it, here’s our post with five tips to ripen green tomatoes).

I don’t know if I did something wrong, or it was my tiny tomatoes (angels and cherry)… but I have 3 batches, and all of them are horribly bitter. I followed the recipe, to the T. I don’t understand how mine can be so very different from others that say this is the wonderful tasting. Either way, the tomatoes were going to ruin as a frost was on it’s way. Just had to chime in and say this recipe did NOT work for us. (The seals are all good, no problem with that….just very very bitter)
Always wear gloves when working with hot chile peppers (fresh, dried, or roasted chiles).  Never touch your eyes when working with chile peppers. Gloves will protect your hands, but the capsaicin in the chile pepper sticks to all it touches, and if you touch near your eyes it will burn.  Rinse well with copious amounts of water.  Please do not learn this lesson the hard way!

Instead of using jalapeno peppers, use Serrano peppers for a better flavor. They are a bit more powerful and spicy so you have to be careful and experiment with how hot you want the salsa to get. My rule of thumb is one medium seedless and veinless Serrano is mild, three with seeds and veins is spicy. You cab adjust the heat by keeping or removing the seeds and veins. Wear gloves and don’t touch your eyes, even hours after you work with the hot peppers of any type. Water doesn’t clean that from your hands, rubbing alcohol does.

There are a variety of ways you can spice up your salsa. There are loads of hot peppers on the market, dried or fresh but some really hold a punch of heat. We have used habenero peppers with success but for this salsa today we used red hot peppers, that are similar in appearance to jalapenos and also jalapenos but leaving some seeds in. Also purchased from the market were Red Thai peppers and we added those in also. We have used these before for pickles to give them extra heat.
Canning jar lids and bands – Rings and metal bands that secure the lids to the jars. You will ALWAYS use NEW LIDS when canning. Bands may be re-used but, never try to can new products by using old lids. Be sure to wash the bands and check them to make sure they are not bent.
The most important aspect of her recipe is the method. I have tried many variants so far as the ingredients are concerned, and even now have several quarts of salsa in my freezer labeled “Kitchen sink salsa” because I harvested ALL the peppers and tomatoes and tomatillos in my garden (just before the freeze) and made a couple of gallons of salsa.
I’ve made this my only salsa recipe this year and the results were superb. I used dried cilantro, kosher salt, and cooked the mixture a bit longer because I didn’t drain the tomatoes enough. I used a combination of romas and stewing tomatoes so it was s bit watery.
Thank you for the recipe! My friend and I made it in an evening and we have a neat tip: after roasting and peeling the tomatoes, put them in a salad spinner to drain out juices! Works super well and you can freeze the juice for using later in soups, stews, chilli, etc!
I’ve made this a couple times since finding your recipe. Our tomato plants have been prolific, but the tomatoes haven’t really been ripening, so this recipe has been a great way to use the green tomatoes. Super yummy!
Thank you so much for adding the high altitude adjustments for this recipe.  With all the tomato plants in our garden this year (my husband started 24 plants from seeds) I will probably be looking for uses for our bounty. Especially since he gave some of the plants to our neighbors…
We are having a party Saturday night and I just got excited and made this Wednesday night (I hope thats ok in the fridge?!) My jalapeno was not spicy at all once I deseeded it – is that unusual? The grocer had rather dull tomatoes so I used some romas and some little grape tomatoes too because they were a much brighter red. I’m so very pleased with this – THANK YOU!
This recipe looks delicious. I loved tomatoes. For my every salsa preparation I prefer tomatoes. But, never tried cucumber. It sounds me and I can’t wait to make it with cucumber. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
I make a dish like this for most parties except substitute smaller amount of lime juice for vinegar, use chopped roma tomatoes drained in a colander before mixing, also add more onions and jalapenos to taste, plus a “kicker” of a few drops of Tabasco to taste and garlic salt. I like flavors to blend before placing in a colander type serving dish in a well of crushed ice for a party. Though, must say I do like your idea of using the drained juice in my salad dressing, so will work on the ice draining in a way to save the juices. Thanks!
Last year for my birthday, I had all of my friends over for an epic chips-and-salsa-a-thon, which was downright dreamy. Instead of cooking, Barclay and I drove around town all afternoon and picked up a dozen or so different salsas from our favorite Mexican restaurants. And then we whipped up an enormous batch of my classic margaritas, opened up a zillion bags of and had all of our friends over for the most delicious taste test ever. Totally my kind of birthday.

Hi Michele, Thanks for your comment and I’m so glad it worked out. The reason your sauce would’ve been watery is that the recipe calls for cooking the sauce uncovered on the stovetop so the excess moisture can cook out. A slow cooker retains the moisture, so what you did in terms of thickening it and removing the lid was perfect!
Delicious!!!  As far a second knowing how many tomatoes to use, you mentioned somewhere that it was three sheet pans of halved tomatoes.  Using this information, I collected my garden tomatoes on my counter by placing them on my baking sheet.  When I had my baking sheet full plus another half, I knew I had enough tomatoes (or at least that I would be close once I drained them).  Turned out great!!  Even my daughter who can tell handle spicy foods LOVES this salsa!
—I found this doing an search for green tomato relish, and was happy to find a recipe that did not call for sugar! I was not convinced on the apples, but added them anyway thinking they would help thicken it up. OMG! It is really great. Reminds me of tomatillo salsa.
Not a stupid question at all. There are so many varieties of tomatoes. Green Tomatoes are large red tomatoes that have not ripened. They have a tart/tangy flavor. You could also use tomatillos, which is what salsa verde is usually made with.
The USDA says the only change you can safely make in this salsa recipe is to change the amount of spices and herbs. Do not alter the proportions of vegetables to acid and tomatoes because it might make the salsa unsafe. Do not substitute vinegar for the lemon juice.
I doubled this recipe for a crowd. Made the following modifications: 1. Doubled the garlic. 2. Omitted sugar. 3. Added half of a ripe fresh pineapple, trimmed & cored. (I used this amount for the doubled recipe, so just 1/4 for the regular recipe.) 4. Threw all ingredients in the food processor (did not pre-chop much)and whirled it around until it was salsa-like. I got RAVE reviews on this salsa & it’s so wonderfully fresh. After the pineapple, the doubled recipe yielded about 6 cups.
2) The variety of tomatoes doesn’t necessarily matter for this recipe, but the method does. This recipe calls for draining the peeled, chopped tomatoes and you’ll definitely want to follow this step otherwise your salsa will be watery.
Add the seasonings and bring to a gentle simmer, just to get it hot (180 F, if you have a thermometer). Keeping it at 180 F for 30 minutes prior to water bath processing kills any bacteria and enzymes. Adjust the heat to maintain 180 F and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • “I just made this recipe and it is delicious. I used about 1/2 cup sliced jarred jalapenos for nachos instead of roasting the jalapenos and also used a can of fire roasted stewed tomatoes because it used less sugar. I used a regular 28 oz. can of tomatoes also. This is a winner. Tastes just like the salsa you get in restaurants. We loved it. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.”
    This is really about making your salsa to taste so here is a very simple recipe to get you going and you can swank it up with whatever you like.  I am not a spicy girl but rather a salty-lime girl so I tend to amp up those flavors.
    No need to head to southern Oregon for an armwrestle, Ms. Mel! You win hands down on the salsa recipe! My husband and I made one batch lickety-split last evening between my building a house with Habitat for Humanity all day and Beauty and the Beast at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival at 8:00 pm! Luckily he was here to chop the onions, peppers, garlic because rather than 7 jalapeno peppers he said, “Let’s try one and add more when we eat it should we choose.” Smart Man, indeed! Our jalapenos, fresh from the garden, must be the very hot type as even with just one, there is still some kick to the salsa! I’ve given small jars to some of my foodie friends here in the hood to get their opinions and share the love!. Suffice it to say that I am “home” with your recipe! Thanks for sharing so completely. I too am a new Steam Canning advocate. As a Master Recycler as well, the idea of using so much less water is right up my alley and for years we’ve known steam is hotter than boiling. I’m off to Toastmasters, my belly full, healthy and happy! I really appreciate your site and your presentation style!
