Easiest, Most Delicious Salsa Ever!!!

Phew!  It’s been a long time since I have been able to blog… We FINALLY have our  computer back and in working order!  After a new charger, DVD/CD drive, and a whole new hard drive, our PC has been completely overhauled and is like brand new again!  So, I will hopefully get back to blogging again on a regular basis!  I have about a dozen unfinished posts waiting to be given the final touches and posted.  For now, here is one that was easy to finish up.

I didn’t come up with this recipe. I didn’t change it from the original recipe it all.  I take no credit for how delicious and easy this recipe is.  But, it is just so easy and delicious that I had to share it with you!  I could eat it by itself – it was SOOOO good! I want to put it on everything. (And, the meal that it is paired with (Pork Carnitas Tacos) is amazing as well!  You should make it!  We all LOVED it and raved about it!)

Tomatillo Salsa

Recipe from http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/2011/08/01/recipe-pork-carnitas-tacos-with-tomatillo-salsa/

1 1/2 lbs. tomatillos
1 smallish white onion, roughly chopped
3/4 c. chopped cilantro leaves
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 jalapeno, seeded and roughly chopped


Preheat broiler on high.

Peel tomatillos and slice in half.  Place on a baking sheet covered in foil, sliced side down.  Broil for 5-7 minutes or until the skin is lightly blackened.

Place tomatillos, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and jalapeno in a food processor or blender.  (I used our Magic Bullet, with it’s blender attachment.)

Blend until desired consistency – for me, lightly chunky.  Allow to cool in the refrigerator.  Salsa can be stored in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

Put it on everything – seriously! That is what I plan to do. It’s that delicious!!!!
