I picked up this recipe from my Mexican neighbor, whose favorite salsa is salsa verde. Stamp of approval received. Easy, simple, delicious.

- 1.5 cups water
- 1.5 lbs tomatillo (5-6 should do)
- 2 jalapeño
- 1 yellow onion, halved & root removed
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled
- 2 Tbsp cilantro, stems removed & leaves chopped
- 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 tsp lime zest
- pinch of sea salt
- 1. Add water to a medium sized saucepan on medium high heat, large enough to accommodate for all the ingredients. Add a pinch or two of sea salt. Bring to a rolling boil.
- 2. Gently add whole tomatillos, jalapeños, onion, & garlic to the water. Boil for 10-15 minutes.
- 3. When tomatillos are evenly cooked, ladle the contents of the pot into a blender or a food processor. You can tell when the tomatillos are cooked by its softness. If you can easily push down on a tomatillo with a wooden spoon, it's ready!
- 4. Blend the salsa to your desired consistency. Transfer back to the same pot you used earlier & cook on low for 5-10 more minutes. Stir occasionally. Add cilantro, lime juice, & zest. Turn off the heat & allow salsa to cool.
