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.
Pulse 10 times, until broken down, yet chunky. Add avocado & jalapeño.
Pulse 10 times to combine. Salsa will be chunky.
