Fresh Salsa Verde

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This is another great recipe from Sabrosa which is a local entertainment and dining guide. The tomatillos give this an almost citrusy bite. It is a great sauce for spooning on tacos, serving with chips or garnishing your favorite soup or beans. Leave the seeds in the jalapeno if you want this really "hot".

Very good, very healthy. I make this again and again while I have tomatillo's on hand and alter the amount of avocado depending on if they are in season. Yum!
