Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with this Yummy Tomatillo Salsa

Gayle A. Reeves - Saturday, April 26, 2014

This delicious salsa is not only an easy-to-make recipe but the perfect zesty treat for any summer picnic or even the upcoming Cinco De Mayo celebrations.

  • ½ pound tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1 large or 1 ½ small Serrano chiles, cored, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. coarsely chopped white onion
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. finely chopped garlic
Cut the tomatillos into quarters. Put them into a blender or a food processor, along with the chiles, onion, cilantro, salt, and garlic. Pulse, scraping the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula after a few seconds, until the ingredients are very finely chopped and combined (the salsa should be somewhat smooth, but still have some texture), 30 to 60 seconds. Season to taste. A crowd pleaser!!
