Fresh Tomatillo Salsa

How to make fresh tomatillo salsa-

What you need-

Tomatillos (I used about 20-25 for this batch)

1 yellow onion

Handful of cilantro

Juice from 1/2 of a lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

*Optional- fresh corn (1 cob) and fresh yellow pear tomatoes (handful). See picture on bottom right of collage.

How to make the salsa:

Pick up some tomatillos from the nearest farmer’s market (or in my case, my backyard). Peel and wash them. Slice tomatillos in half and throw in food processor along with onions, cilantro, lemon, salt and pepper. Pulse until everything is finely chopped and combined. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

If you want to make the corn and tomatillo salsa, just add the fresh corn from one cob and chop the yellow pear tomatoes in quarters and add to the rest of your tomatillo salsa. I sometimes make this salsa with roasted tomatillos instead of using them raw and both ways are delicious! Roasting tomatillos is easy- just broil them on a baking sheet for 5-8 minutes or until they start to brown/blacken a little.  Then follow the recipe the same as you do with raw tomatillos.
