Green Tomatillo Salsa

You may have encountered tomatillos at your local grocery store in the produce section. They’re little green fruits that resemble tomatoes with a green papery husk. When buying tomatillos, look for a healthy green husk and firm fruit for optimal freshness and tart flavor. Green Tomatillo Salsa


6 medium-sized tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed and quartered
1 clove of garlic, chopped
2 small Roma or slicing tomatoes, chopped
1/2 white onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 jalapeño, chopped (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and chop on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  2. Chop longer for a sauce-like consistency and shorter for a chunky salsa.
  3. Serve as a topping for Latin dishes or with tortilla chips as a side

Tip: If you choose to include the jalapeño in your salsa, try removing the seeds and center of the pepper before chopping to cut down on the intensity of the heat.

Tip: If you have a small food processor you may need to make the salsa in two batches. Simply half the ingredients for each batch and mix together in a container or bowl once processed.
