I am assigning no stars because I have not yet made this as written, but this is as close as recipezaar has to the recipe our friends Newell and Karen gave us for Salsa Cruda de Tomatillo, which is 5 star excellent. The only real difference is jalapeno peppers instead of poblanos. Our recipe says 1 lb. tomatillos, 1 onion, 1 clove garlic, 2 jalapenos, 1 small bunch cilantro. I think we used 3/4 t salt. Thanks for posting!
