This recipe is intended to encourage variation and adaptation based on the herbs you prefer or have on hand. Love tarragon? Toss it in! Loathe cilantro? Leave it out and substitute oregano or basil.

Recipe Testers' Reviews
WOW! This sauce is magical! It was really easy to make and was absolutely delicious on everything I put it on.
I first used it on top of chopped grilled chicken on salad and it was amazing. I also used it used it in a garden omelette which I will do again.
This is a must-have in my fridge at all times.
I used parsley, cilantro, and mint along with 12 pickled jalapeno slices, and Old El Paso. I ended up with 1 1/4 cups, which was fine with me, it was so good
I didn't need to adjust anything as the flavor was great as-is.
This stuff is pretty magical. I made this to accompany a dinner of grilled steak and vegetables. We put it on everything that night—steak, corn on the cob, asparagus, salad—and it was a hit!
It was a nice change from my standby of garlic, salt, and pepper—a tangy and bright tasty addition. Easy to make with pantry items and garden herbs.
Since then, I've also added it to scrambled eggs and toast, and veggie sandwiches. It made enough for dinner for four with leftovers to use all week. Will definitely make this again, especially for summer grilling!
No matter how much of this or how often I make it, this green sauce will be destined to magically disappear in no time in my house. It won’t be a big deal to constantly run out of it though, as it only takes 10 minutes to make a new batch.
The herbs of my choice were cilantro, parsley, and mojito mint and I used 8 slices pickled jalapeños for the sauce. It was super aromatic, sharp and sweet at the same time, and had great consistency for dipping and spreading.
It was fabulous on quesadillas, huevos rancheros, steamed fingerling potatoes, and toasted ciabatta with queso fresco.
It lasted in the fridge for 3 days, and it stayed green (lighter than the photo more like avocado green rather than pesto green).
This is good stuff. It's tangy, it's herbal, it's zingy. It's hard to go wrong with it.
I think more herbs can't be a bad thing so I used all three of the herbs called for, and maybe went a bit heavy on them, more like a handful of each. I used roughly equal amounts of parsley and cilantro, and a smaller amount of mint since it's a strong flavor and still sings loudly through the chorus. (It was 50 grams parsley and cilantro combined and 15 grams mint for 65 grams total.) Some tarragon might be fun in this sauce and take it in a slightly different direction. I used 12 slices store-bought pickled jalapeño.
I can think of a million uses. I used it as a dip for tostones, but it could make a great salad dressing, a dip for French fries, steamed veggies, crudités, in a pita, on a taco, you name it.
I have an Aerogarden on my kitchen sink and am always looking for ways to use up excess herbs. This sauce is a great way to do it. And besides, it's fresh and great for spring and summer grilling!
This green sauce is zingy, refreshing, and so so tasty—addictive, actually. I loved the recipe—really straightforward and quick.
This sauce can be used for so many different dishes. I know this will become a staple in our house. We had it on green salad with veal in bread crumbs, we tried it with samosa and onion bhaji (for a great non-dairy raita—actually way better than raita), and we dipped Jersey Royals into it whilst watching the last episode of Game of Thrones!
And it’s really adaptable, too, as you can change the herbs to suit the dish you’re having. It’s quick, too, and lasts in the fridge!
I used mint, parsley, basil, and oregano and 8 slices of store-bought pickled jalapenos. The capers provided the zinginess which was what made this so addictive. I omitted the garlic as my husband had client meetings the next day and raw garlic can be pretty offensive! But I would include it next time.
My choice of herbs was reliant on what I had in the garden and this is where I love this recipe. I was quite generous on the mint and hence why I think it went so well with samosa and onion bhaji. The basil also made it zingy. I love how adaptable this recipe is.
This green sauce is, indeed, magic. It took less than 10 minutes, start to finish. I used all three herbs, fresh from the garden, with the maximum amount of jalapenos suggested. Truth be told, I used 3 cloves of garlic because, well, it's garlic, what else needs to be said.
Whiz away in the food processor and enjoy. Probably need to make a double batch as there's no way this will last 5 days in the refrigerator, not because it goes bad but because you'll use it all way before that.

Substitutions and Variations
If you don’t have Anaheim peppers (which are fairly mild), you could use Poblano Peppers (also fairly mild), Hatch/New Mexico chiles (mild-medium) or Cubanelle peppers (extremely mild).
Don’t want it spicy? Omit the jalapeno pepper. You could also remove and discard all the seeds and veins of the chiles since that’s where a lot of the heat comes from.
If you’re a chili lover and want to add more heat, you can use a serrano pepper instead of a jalapeno. (Learn more about chile peppers and their spice level on the scoville scale here.)
Love roasted tomatillos? You can roast one or two along with the green chiles to add in some of that bright acidic tomatillo flavor.
For the best result at home, follow the cooking tips below:
- You can make very good, authentic and delicious curries using store-bought curry paste.
- The secret is to balance the flavors the curry has to be spicy (from the curry paste), rich and creamy (from the coconut milk), savory (from the fish sauce) and sweet (from palm sugar or sugar).
- Sweet, sour, salty and spicy are the four pillars of Thai cuisine. Once you master the perfect balance, you can make just about any Thai food at home!

- 3 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken breast halves
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 5 garlic cloves, unpeeled
- 2 jars (16 ounces each) medium green salsa
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 12 corn tortillas (6-inch)
- 12 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, coarsely shredded (3 cups)
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper place with garlic on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of breast (avoiding bone) registers 165 degrees, 25 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine salsa and cream.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Once chicken is cool enough to handle, shred meat, discarding skin and bones. Peel and chop garlic. In a large bowl, combine chicken, garlic, and 1/2 cup salsa mixture.
Stack tortillas flat, and wrap in damp paper towels microwave on high for 1 minute to soften. Working with one tortilla at a time, dip in salsa mixture, lay flat, and fill with 1/3 cup chicken mixture. Roll up and arrange, seam side down, 8 enchiladas lengthwise and 4 crosswise in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Top with remaining salsa mixture, then cheese.
Bake until cheese is browned and salsa is bubbling, 40 to 45 minutes let rest 10 minutes. Serve, sprinkled with cilantro, if desired.
