This salsa was actually an invention of my dad’s. I simply copied his idea. (He didn’t have a recipe, as usual. :-) ) The ingredients don’t have to be added in these exact proportions. You can change them to suit your needs or taste. One reason I like this salsa especially is because tomatoes bother me some, but apparently tomatillos don’t. It also has a great flavor that is a little different than the usual fresh tomato salsa. I find it a bit more refreshing.
3-4 large tomatillos (Probably more if you use homegrown.)
1 green onion, (green leaf parts only, unless you like lots of onion)
1 large jalapeno
3-4 garlic cloves
A little fresh (or frozen) cilantro
Juice of one lemon
Salt to taste
Prep. vegetable appropriately and run in a food processor or blender in batches. Mix all together well and allow to sit in the fridge about 15 minutes before serving. (Refrigerate leftovers.)
I love fresh salsa on a fried egg with sour cream on top and this kind is especially delicious. You can also use it with corn or tortilla chips, tacos or burritos. Mix it with sour cream for a yummy dip. I spooned a little over chicken I was cooking in a frying pan with vegetables one night. It was good that way too.
