Avocado Tomatillo Salsa – A Simple Green Sauce for Summer

This spectacularly simple green sauce may be the perfect
summer condiment. It requires no cooking, only takes minutes, looks gorgeous,
and tastes amazing with anything grilled, and most things not. 

It’s also great for
treating a bad sunburn. That’s right, just serve this and chips along with
three or four margaritas, and the victim will feel significantly better in no

I will admit this is a sauce I take for granted. I’m
lucky enough to live near San Francisco’s Mission District, and there are
hundreds of taquerias and restaurants, all of which feature some type of fresh,
green salsa. Each place uses a slightly unique combination of ingredients, but
I’ve never had one I didn’t enjoy. 

Not all contain avocado, but I really like the addition
since it adds a wonderful richness, and the extra fat helps carry the other
flavors around. As you’ll see next week, this was delicious on some pork tacos,
but there are so many other amazing options. Try it on scrambled eggs, use it
as a relish for sausage, or as a dip for fried-anything.  I really hope you give this a try soon.

Ingredients for about 1 1/4 cups:
1 generous cup sliced tomatillos (about 6 oz by weight)
*Note: if you can’t find fresh, you can use canned
tomatillos in a pinch
1 tbsp minced Serrano pepper, or to taste
1 large ripe avocado
1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
1/2 lime, juiced
salt to taste
