Pati :
I made your green salsa cruda , but I must have done something wrong
becuase it came out saltly. I made it with canned tomatillo and I forgot to rinse them. I did’t put any salt in it. It does taste good but too salty for my taste. How do I fix it?
Thank you
Ana Luisa

Hola Ana, Thank you for trying the recipe! Maybe try it with fresh tomatillos, next time, or look for salt-free or low-salt canned tomatillos…
