Very different! I have never made a recipe with tomatillos before so it was fun to try this. I used 2 avocados and served this with chips. Very nice!

We really liked this salsa. I cut the recipe in half and it made 4 servings which we enjoyed with burritos.The lime and tomatillos gave it a fresh tart flavor. If I were to make it again, I would double the amount of avocado. Thanks Kiwi!
