Lazy Salsa

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One day, an overload of tomatillos in the garden led to “winging it” in the kitchen, resulting in this tasty salsa.  Little did I know, this is a common salsa in Mexico.  One of our employees on the farm told me that in Mexico this Tomatillo Salsa is actually called Lazy Salsa, since the Tomatillos aren’t roasted.  What a great name!  It stuck.  Try this over fish or as a salsa served with chips.  Both ways are refreshing and satisfying.

1/2 cup chopped sweet onions
1 clove garlic, peeled
4 cups quartered tomatillos (approx 15 medium)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1 large avocado, cubed
2 tbsp seeded & minced jalapeno (approx 2 medium)

In the bowl of a food processor, combine sweet onion and garlic.

Process until finely diced, scraping down the sides, as necessary.  To the onions, add tomatillos, lemon juice, sea salt & pepper.


Lemon Juice

Sea Salt

Cracked Black Pepper

Pulse 10 times, until broken down, yet chunky.  Add avocado & jalapeño.



Pulse 10 times to combine.  Salsa will be chunky.

Lazy Salsa is great over fish!
