Onto the recipe! I have always wanted to try making my own salsa verde, so when saw this recipe on Tasty Kitchen I couldn't wait to make it. It was really fun using tomatillos, a small green tomato covered in a papery like husk. This salsa is tangy, fresh, and easy. I loved the chunks of avocado and hubby loved the cilantro taste. We enjoyed it with tortilla chips and as a topping on tacos.
Tomatillo Avocado Salsa
From Laura @ Sweet Savory Planet
1/2 pound Tomatillos (about 4 medium Tomatillos)
1/2 cup Cilantro, loosely packed
2 whole Serrano, roughly chopped (Note: jalapeno can be substituted, which is what I used because my store didn't have Serranos)
1/4 cup water
1 Avocado, diced
1/2 medium sized white onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Place tomatillos, cilantro, Serrano pepper, and water in a food processor and pulse until you have a slightly chunky puree.
Toss the avocado into the processor and pulse for a second or two. Make sure to keep the avocado in good sized chunks.
Place the diced onion in a colander and give it a good rinse in cold water to rid the onion of sulfur flavor. Add it to the salsa and stir. Season with salt and stir again. Taste to see if more salt is needed.
