This creamy pastel green salsa isn’t meant to be especially hot; it’s meant to provide a cooling counterpoint to other spicier condiments. Like all salsas, it can be spooned over a grilled protein (salmon is particularly good) as easily as scooped up with a tortilla chip.

I sometimes add a little mayonnaise to the last bit and use as a sandwich spread.
