This summer I've had a consistent harvest of tomatillos from our garden. It's been fun trying new recipes with these husk-enveloped green gems. One recipe has been made weekly... it is this easy Garden Fresh Tomatillo Salsa. You can make it too! And if not from your garden or local farm stand, tomatillos can be found in your grocer's produce section.
This salsa can be used as a condiment for any dish or as the featured ingredient in Salsa Verde Baked Chicken. This Salsa Verde Baked Chicken recipe has recently been my 'go to' dinner recipe (super-quick to make with only a few ingredients). Find that recipe HERE.
Fresh Garden Tomatillo Salsa (2 cups)
1 pound tomatillos (husk and slice in half)
1 jalapeño, slice in half lengthwise
1/2 medium sweet onion
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place tomatillos and pepper cut side down on paper.
Roast high in oven for 20 minutes until skins are brown.
In a food processor, blend onion, cilantro and garlic.
Add contents of roasting pan (liquid, too) and lime juice. Blend until well combined and of equal consistency. Salt to taste.
Store in a sealed container or jar in the refrigerator for up to one week. Enjoy!
