What a terrific, very zesty, salsa verde! I followed this exactly only halving the recipe. A perfect balance of veggies, and I agree~blanching tomatillo first is right on target here. I made mine this morning, and served this afternoon ~ all the ingredients had set, and not one ingredient stood out, they were all so wonderfully combined. I cubed my tomatillos into little cubes and they had the nicest little crunch. Thank you for such a refreshing taste! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* June 2009
