Eat: Green (Tomato-less) Tomatillo Salsa

tomatillo_salsaNext time you go to a summer BBQ, volunteer to bring some of this ^^ tomato-less salsa along! I love it, my Aunt made it all the time, and her daughter finally gave me the secret recipe. Tomatillo’s are not as sweet as tomatoes, but give a zangy twist to the traditional red, tomato salsa.

tomatillo This is a tomatillo ^^ It usually has a big leaf around it, in this picture I’ve already torn it off.

tomatillo_salsa2 All you need is:

  • half an onion
  • 12-15 tomatillos
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • cilantro (optional)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • a few pinches of salt

Directions:

Cube onions  tomatillos (to make it easier to blend), and put in blender. Then add lemon juice, garlic, cilantro & jalapeno. Add salt to taste (I added very little salt because the tortilla chips already so salty!). Enjoy!
