FAST AND EASY to Make! This is a nutritious spread, and can be used as a dip for "Platanos Fritos" and vege sticks, "Fajitas", lacing sushi rolls, atop veggie burgers, or in any lettuce wrap. To reduce inflammatory responses we have taken out the tomatillos, but feel free to add them in if you are not following Anti-Infammatory dietary guidelines. This is the fastest Mexican Green Salsa recipe ever, it's raw, and keeps well for weeks in a good airtight glass container. Make a big batch if you and your family like it. Use a little more water for a thinner salsa, but slowly-the avocado gives it a nice texture lost with too much water... I usually use less than a cup of water to use as a dip for "Platanos Fritos", and lace my sushi with it. Add the WOW factor by sprinkling a little cayenne pepper on top when serving as a topping to veggie burgers or decorating sushi as you would spicy mayo.
- 1 avocado
- 1 chili serrano peppers or 1 jalapeno
- 1⁄2 lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup water
- cilantro, handful
- Cut stem part off of chili serrano or jalapeno. If using tomatillos, peel off outer brown leaf like skin and stem. Trim tips of cilantro. I use frozen garlic to make this even a faster recipe, feel free to use fresh garlic.
- Pour in water to blender, add in cilantro and then rest of ingredients. We like garlic so I use 2 cloves -- you may want to start with one clove and taste before adding the second! Blend on high until smooth. DONE!
We enjoyed this dip. I loved the combination of avocado, serrano pepper, garlic and cilantro. It was a nice alternative to my traditional guacamole. Thanks for posting! Made for Spring Pick A Chef in the Contests/Events forum.
