Since it is very hot outside these days, I don’t have big appetite and bit of a crunchy seeded squares with homemade fresh and flavorful salsa sounds like a perfect mid day snack.
Never made this type of salsa before but my jalapeno peppers were just ready to be picked so yesterday I decided to make salsa verde.
Last Thursday my kids and I were visiting our local farmers market in El Segundo so we bought beautiful basket of tomatillos and green tomatoes.
Jose from Gama Farms has always very nice selection of fruits and veggies and variety of onions.
Very friendly people and good quality produce grown locally, outside of Bakersfield.
Here is my recipe for delicious fresh salsa:
1/2 lb tomatillos
1 green tomato, ripe, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove
cilantro leaves, small bunch
half of fresh lemon, juice
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
salt to taste
extra virgin olive oil, drizzle
Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well.
Place tomatillos, garlic, onions, cilantro, green tomato, olive oil in a food processor and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season with salt and squeeze fresh lemon, season to taste.
Add chopped jalapeno pepper.
Transfers to serving bowl, cover well and cool in refrigerator till ready to be served.
Serve with chips and enjoy your afternoon:)
Tomatillos are the fruits average about 1 -2″ wide and have a papery outer skin.
Tomatillos are good source of vitamin C. In Mexico a concoction made of the flower calyces is used to treat Diabetes. The fruits are also used as a remedy for fever.
Wow what a lovely fresh green salsa 🙂
Thanks Tes, love your new photo:)
What a fabulous salsa and full of gorgeous colours and flavours. Wonderful in the heat. Just one problem here, someone has run away with our Parisian summer sun and for the moment won’t even give it back. I’m sure if we eat this, it may help its return…

There is nothing better than fresh salsa. It’s perfect with salads, grilled meats, chips – how can you go wrong. Lucky you to have your own peppers!
