      Wonderful salsa! It has a fresh, flavorful taste and comes out a beautiful green. We enjoyed both cold with chips and warmed with the olive oil over some enchiladas. Great both ways. Thanks for sharing! Veg*n Swap 29

      This is the first time I have used tomatillos and it won't be the last! This was very good. I only used 1 jalapeno. I thought I had bought cilantro, but when I got home discoverd it was Italian flat leaf parsley! The salsa was good anyway and I will make it again using the cilantro! I served this over crockpot enchiladas and it was great! Thanks Rita!
