Fresh Salsa Verde

Fresh salsa verde is my favorite salsa for chips, thanks to a great little restaurant back in Norman, Oklahoma, called Pepe Delgado’s. We eat there every time we are in Oklahoma – the food is full of veggies and it’s sooo easy to eat vegan there, even though it isn’t a vegan restaurant. No weird […]
