CREAMY SALSA VERDE
IngredientsServes about 2 cups (500 ml)
10 medium sized tomatillos, husked, rinsed and roughly chopped
2 Serrano chilies, stemmed and roughly chopped, keeping seeds
1 garlic clove
¼ cup (60 ml) chopped Vidalia onion
½ cup (125 ml) cilantro leaves and tender stems
1 avocado, halved, pitted and peeled
2 tbsp (30 ml) lime juice
kosher salt, to taste
- In a blender place tomatillos, chilies, garlic and onion. Pulse until tomatillos break down and mixture is still slightly chunky. Add cilantro, avocado, lime juice and a pinch of salt. Pulse again until salsa is well combined, creamy but still has some texture. Season to taste with additional salt. Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. Best served same day it is made.
- Note: If your grill is on you could add an extra dimension to this salsa by tossing whole tomatillos, Serrano chilies and a quarter Vidalia onion in a little vegetable oil and grilling until tender and charred. Let cool before making salsa.
