Paleo Roasted Salsa Verde

Paleo roasted salsa verde is a more flavorful spin on regular salsa verde. The fire roasted chilis and veggies kicks it up a notch!

Uses for Paleo Roasted Salsa Verde

There are COUNTLESS ways to use this salsa, beyond just using it with tortilla chips. Check out the following ideas, and let me know if you try any by leaving a comment below!

My favorite way is to use it in this Pork Verde Skillet recipe. If you’re looking for egg free breakfasts on your Whole30, then this recipe is for you! It’s quite delicious and if you make it at the beginning of the week, you’ll have it to pull from the rest of the weeks.

Not on a Whole30 or avoiding dairy? Mix it with some sour cream for a creamy dip. This is delicious served over an enchilada casserole!

Use this as a topping for fajitas and tacos, or slather it on a tortilla before you make your burrito!

Mix it into some scrambled eggs before frying. Or, fry your eggs then top with this paleo roasted salsa verde. Yummy!

Have some pork chops to use? Put them right in the crock pot with this paleo roasted salsa verde! Cook on low for a few hours and let the flavors sink into the pork chops.

I love making simple sauteed potatoes with these too. First I saute the potatoes until mostly softened in a skillet. Then add in the roasted salsa verde and finish sauteing. Super yummy! For some protein to make it a full meal, add some chopped bacon or leftover chicken! Throw in some more veggies for more nutrition and voila! A delicious and complete meal!

  • When broiled veggies have cooled, place all ingredients in a blender Blend until smooth and enjoy!

Allergen and Lifestyle Friendly

This Salsa Verde is paleo friendly and Whole30 compatible! Note that the chips pictured are neither paleo nor Whole30. But you can feel confident in using these in your Whole30 or Paleo lifestyle!

Ingredients for Salsa Verde

If you never used tomatillos before (I think I only did once before my adult life), they may seem a bit odd. Once you peel them, they are super sticky! No worries, it’s normal, not dirty. Just wash and scrub them a bit. The stickiness may not all come off but that’s totally fine. Just use them as is.

The recipe calls for a can of fire roasted diced chilis. They taste amazing, but if you can’t find them, use diced green chilis.

Various other dressings and dips to try

If you like this dressing, I have a few more you may love!

Cilantro Lime Dressing is seriously my all time favorite dressing! It goes fabulously with so many things. My favorite way is on top of roasted veggies. I also like it with any Mexican foods and tacos.

Mango Dressing is another unique and delicious dressing! It’s sweet and refreshing and there’s nothing like it!

If you prefer pre-made dressings, I love The New Primal. They have my absolute favorite buffalo sauce in three varying degrees of spiciness, delicious ranch dressings, barbecue sauces, and salad dressings! Use code THECLEANHAPPYLIFE at checkout for 15% off!

Side note-they also have the best coconut aminos around! Some coconut aminos I’ve tried are too much on the sweet side. I like mine to taste as close to soy or teriyaki sauce as possible, and theirs does the trick!
