Tomatillo Salsa

May 25, 2009


~ Mary ~

Wow was this good.  Cool, refreshing and easy to throw together.  The recipe came from Bobby Flay’s Mesa cookbook.   It’s going to be one of our summer staples.




Tomatillo Salsa


Optional to put half the tomatillos and onions in a blender.  It will give it a different consistancy like this photo, but it won’t affect the flavor if you don’t and you’ll save time and cleaning if you don’t.

   10 Tomatillos – diced

   1 Small Red Onion – diced 

    Minced Garlic

    1 Tbsp Honey

    Spicy Pepper – fresh or dry


   Kosher Salt 


1/4 Cup Cilantro – chopped 


1/4 Cup Lime Juice – fresh or bottled


         2 Tbsp olive Oil

Combine and serve

    Salsa verde is one of my favorites and I really like the sounds of a fresh tomatillo salsa!

    I’m going to make this tonight to serve over grilled fish. It looks just wonderful, and we’re kinda tired of “red” salsa. BTW, what font do you use for your Foodo del Mundo logo? It’s perfect!!!

      Oh I hope you like it as much as we do!
      I’m going to try grilling/roasting the tomatillos and onions next time.
      The font is Gigi.
      Let me know how the salsa turns out!

        The salsa was amazing! I had a couple roasted tomato halves in the fridge so tossed them in too. Really good.

        Love “Gigi font — thanks!!
