  • 1 lb Tomatillos
  • 0 1/2 small Red Onions
  • 0 3/4 cup Cilantro (Coriander)
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 pepper Jalapeno Peppers
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/8 tsp Black Pepper


Break out of your red salsa rut!  This green salsa is tangy and slightly spicy and has a bit of crunch too.  If you haven't experimented with tomatillo, a member of the tomato family that's particularly low in carbs, this is a good first recipe to try.  Be sure to wear gloves and don't touch your eyes as (or after) you chop up and de-seed the jalapeno pepper.  Each serving is 1/4 cup.
  1. Remove the husk from the tomatillo then chop it.  Finely chop the onion and the jalapeno.  Chop the cilantro.  
  2. Mix tomatillos, onion, cilantro, lime juice, oil, jalapeno, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
