Each summer, we plan at least one big bonfire appetizer party at our house. I love entertaining but like to do it simply, otherwise I get very overwhelmed. My husband has a big family and they have always had parties potluck style. This is such a simpler way of entertaining because you do not have to do everything yourself. Then, when I go to their parties, I bring a dish to pass too. It works out so well!

Tomorrow is our annual party and I cannot wait. I am making three appetizers myself: pizza dip with homemade breadsticks, veggie cream cheese pizza and this amazing salsa verde with tortilla chips.

To make it easier, I stocked up on most of the ingredients earlier in the week. I also made this salsa verde the day before to make less work the day of the party.

Until about a year ago, I was not a fan of salsa verde- I know, I was crazy! Luckily, a switch flipped and I am obsessed with it! I make my own red salsa all the time and when I saw fresh tomatillos at the grocery store, I knew it was time to try my own homemade green salsa.

It was super easy to make and turned out so good. I am using this green salsa verde on everything! Tacos, eggs, with chips, etc. So, so good!
