Lovely salsa verde recipe by chef Jonathan Waxman, a James Beard winning chef. He is one of the pioneers of California cuisine in the 70s, and is the first to bring its style of fusing French cooking techniques with the freshest local ingredients to New York at the iconic Jams restaurant.
He was also a Top Chef Masters TV star.
Today, chef Waxman owns Barbuto in Manhattan’s West Village, Jams at 1 Hotel Central Park, and Baffi in Atlanta.
Mexican Salsa Verde has a tomatillo base. This version doesn’t. It includes several fresh herbs, which is chef Waxman’s trademark.
