Tomatillo Salsa

A fresh tomatillo salsa is a great accompaniment with Mexican food, but it really goes with almost anything.  Where I really fell in love with it was at California Chicken Cafe where they serve it with their famous rotisserie chicken and pita.  Kevin and I had a housewarming party back in February and wanted to serve chips and salsa for one of the apps, so I found a Martha Stewart recipe.  It’s so easy and great quality tomatillos can be found at your local Mexican market for super cheap.


  • 1 pound tomatillos (husks removed), washed and quartered.  Tomatillos naturally have a sticky coating on them, so wash them thoroughly after you peel the husks.
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno (ribs and seeds removed, for less heat), coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Coarse salt
Fresh Ingredients!

In a food processor, combine tomatillos, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro with lime juice. Pulse until finely chopped; season with salt.

It doesn’t get easier than that!  Serve with chips, over seared fish, or with eggs. It was a hit with the breakfast tacos we had at the Kawasaki twins’ birthday get together a few months ago.
