Green salsa (Tomatillo salsa)

We have four massive tomatillo plants in our garden, and they are mass producing tomatillos. So we made some green salsa the other day. Now, there are various ways to make green salsa, many of them quite elaborate, but this one is quick and quite tasty.

You need: 3-4 tomatillos; 1-2 green tomatoes (a green variety, like green zebra, not unripe tomatoes. This ingredient is optional); 1 small white onion; 4-5 cloves garlic; 2-3 jalapenos; 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (dhania); salt to taste

How to:

1. Remove the husk on the tomatillos. Wash them well to take off the sticky residue. I sometimes use dish soap to wash them, but if you do, rinse them very well afterward.

2. Dice the onionĀ  and tomatillos (and tomatoes, if you are using them) roughly.

3. Peel the garlic.

4. Deseed the jalapenos.

5. Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend. If you like it chunky, pulse it a couple of times. If you like it smooth, blend well.

Eat with chips.
