SALSA

SALSA

This salsa is getting good reviews from my friends.

Ingredients:
6 Tomatillos*
8 Serrano chiles*
2 small tomatoes*
1/2 cup chopped green onions
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
distilled vinegar, as little as possible to allow blending.
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves (add these last)

*Blanch these (5 second dip in boiling water).
I use a huge strainer and a pot of boiling water.
Blanching is necessary for a fresh tasting salsa.

Peel the leaves from the tomatillos and cut away any parts of the surface that are not green.

Cut the caps off of the chiles.

Peel the tomatoes. Some people substitute canned tomatoes well drained.

Trim the onions. Cut off most of the green part. You can substitute any type of onion.

Put everything into a blender, food processor, chopper or whatever you have.
I have used  a volcanic rock mortar and pestle and it worked fine. Work was the main ingredient.

Add sufficient vinegar to make the blender functional, no more than that. None is good.

Blend, process, or chop until it reaches desired consistency.

Some like it hotter and substitute Habanero peppers. That is not for me. I am sure my friends in India and Pakistan will substitute something even hotter.

Have fun. Next I am posting my recipe for green bread. I am told it is very delicious. It contains the nutrients you need for good health.
