Salsa suiza is a very traditional Mexican specialty. It’s a milk or cream-based sauce, similar to béchamel, but light green in color (from the tomatillos) and mildly spicy. Legend has it that the “suiza” or “swiss” part of its name comes from the use of cream, cheese and milk, which recall the Swiss Alps. It’s a perfect companion for the traditional holiday turkey, bringing some Mexican flavor to your table.
