Fresh Tomatillo Salsa #tastytuesday


I have been helping some friends out on Saturdays at our local Farmers Market.  They grow about everything imaginable on their farm.  This past weekend I was introduced to Tomatillos.  I had never even heard of them but was told they make a delicious green salsa.  So I went to Recipes.com and found an easy recipe that looked so yummy!! This is an easy, no cook recipe which is perfect for this hot weather! I have made it twice now and my family loves it...even Aiden!  It is so good I had to share with you guys, so here you go!

Ingredients

8 medium Tomatillos, husked, rinsed and quartered
2 jalapenos, sliced and seeded
1 clove garlic
1 cup fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt

Fresh ingredients...I didn't realize the jalapenos weren't in the picture until I had cut them.  They were also fresh.

Tomatillos 

All the ingredients before going into the blender. 

It gave my blender a little workout but it turned out great!


Instructions
Put the tomatillos. jalapenos, garlic, cilantro and salt in a blender or food processor.  Pulse until liquified.  If it is too spicy, add a little lime juice to get to desired heat level.  Season to taste with additional salt, if necessary.  Keep in air tight container in refrigerator for 3 days.




The finished product!!  This just screams summer to me!!


Notes
Use tomatillos that are a light green to yellow in color, they are sweeter than the dark green ones.  
8 medium tomatillos equals about 1 pound
This salsa uses raw tomatillos, no need to cook.
Put the tomatillos in the blender first, it will be easier to puree.


*When I made this I only used 1 jalapeno because I knew that Aiden would not eat it if it was too hot.  I thought the heat of the salsa was great for us using just one.  I also do not have a food processor so I did mine in my blender and it took a little while but it did work.  
I hope you guys will give this a try, especially if you aren't familiar with tomatillos.  

Enjoy!!
