A while back Jake, my mom and I decided to go to the Mile High Flea Market and basically buy stuff we don’t need. In the process we ended up doing some great people watching and left with some delicious produce.
We got some beautiful tomatoes and the tomatillos I am using in this recipe, as well as the cilantro and some other great veggies.
I love making tomatillo salsa because it is a break from the traditional tomato salsa.
2 Garlic Cloves – Minced
4 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro (I used summer cilantro so only used about 4 leaves since it is has such a powerful flavor)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Roma Tomatoes
S&P to taste
Start by husking the tomatillos.
Rinse them off and put them in a medium sized pot. Fill the pot with just enough water to cover all of the tomatillos.
Bring them to a boil over high heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes until they soften and begin to burst. Once the tomatillos have cooled chop them into halves.
Next add all your ingredient to the food processor, you may have to add them in slowly or in batches.
This was a large batch of salsa so feel free to cut the recipe in half- we decided to make a large batch because it is so yummy to keep chilled in the fridge and have as an easy and healthy snack.
