Tomatillo Salsa

House 006 
To keep paleo meals interesting, you have to make them flavorful. In conventional cooking, people add flavor through a lot of sugar, cheese, cream, etc. When you eliminate those foods, it's important to find other ways to add flavor. I love creating salsas and sauces that are paleo-friendly.

Tomato salsa is delicious, but it's fun to change it up and play with other vegetables and fruits too. If you're new to tomatillos, they closely resemble a green tomato in appearance, but not in taste. To me, the consistency and texture is more like an apple. The flavor is hard to describe, but give them a try. I've made this salsa for a lot of people and it's always a crowd pleaser!

?

         5 large tomatillos, husked and washed, 3 quartered and 2 coarsely chopped

1-2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion

1/2 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

1 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon honey

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

?????Place the quartered tomatillos and the lime juice in a food processor (a blender would work too) and blend until smooth. Place the coarsely chopped tomatillos, the onionand the jalapeno in a bowl, add the tomatillo mixture and toss to coat. Add the olive oil and honey and season with salt and pepper. Top with cilantro just before serving.

Enjoy!
