This glorious green sauce will brighten up any dish – and any day! Every time I taste it I’m reminded of growing up in Ojai, California and I’m instantly transported to my happy place.

Use it on top of any of my blender soups or add it to a Cozy Bowl or Broth Bowl. It makes a great salad dressing or sandwich spread. For a quick side dish, toss with roasted veggies or corn on the cob. For a main dish, spread it on grilled chicken or shrimp.

It’s good on anything!

My favorite way to use it is on my Summer Corn and Yellow Tomato Blender Soup or I drizzle it over avocado and tuna fish for a quick snack, when I don’t have time to cook, or simply don’t feel like making the effort (yes – I don’t feel like cookings sometimes).


  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, packed densely
  • ½ cup tomatillo sauce or salsa verde
  • 1 cup tomatillos (canned or fresh) or 1 cup green or yellow heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 tsp minced garlic or 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 raw jalapeno (optional)
  • Salt, to taste


Place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until almost mostly smooth (a little chunkiness works here). Add salt to taste. Store in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
