Salsa Verde

Salsa Verde

Whipping up a batch of fresh salsa has never been easier. We think this take on salsa verde is just as good — if not better — than the store-bought version. Bright, herby, and piquant, it's the perfect complement to tacos, chips, meats, and more.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
