Tomatillo Salsa

tomatillo-salsa

Oh. My. This tomatillo salsa is so tasty! And it’s incredibly easy to make. Even growing them is stress-free!

Earlier this year a friend of mine gave me two little tomatillo plants. At first I thought they were mini tomatoes, but she corrected me and told me they originated from Mexico and make the most delicious green salsa. Sounded good to me. I didn’t have any expectations on how well they would grow, but to my surprise (and after an overwatering incident from Murray) they went crazy.

With just two plants I thought I’d only have enough produce to make a little bit of salsa to enjoy with our weekly Mexican dinner, but we had tomatillos everywhere! October has definitely meant Mexican food at our household.

If you’d like to grow them yourself make sure you get two plants for them to pollinate properly. I loved the taste of this freshly made green salsa so much that I will definitely be growing tomatillos again next year and probably every year after that. Highly recommended!

Ingredients

400g   Tomatillos

1          Small red onion

1          Lime

1tsp    Soft brown sugar

Salt and Pepper

Bunch of coriander (roughly chopped)

Methodmakes 1 medium jar

  1. Remove the husks from the tomatillos. Place tomatillos in a large bowl and soak them in warm water for 10 minutes to remove the sticky layer from them.
  2. Finely dice the onion and place into a small bowl, then put the lime zest, juice and sugar into the bowl with the onions. This will soften them.
  3. Put the washed tomatillos into a food processer and pulse until roughly chopped.
  4. Put all the ingredients into a bowl, add the coriander and seasoning and mix.
