Fresh Salsa Verde





For the first time ever, we grew tomatillos in our garden. They were super easy and productive! They didn't have any of the issues that come with regular tomatoes. They stand up and don't need to be staked and they didn't get any powdery mildew. Some of ours fell down, but that's because our watermelons were starting to use them as a trelllis.

We finally picked the first batch and I made some delicious fresh salsa verde, so here in Kalae they were about 3-4 months to harvest???

Unfortunately, my cilantro just went to seed, and my jalepeno  and Hawaiian chili pepper plants are super tiny, so maybe next time I'll be able to sync up the harvest times better.

Fresh Salsa Verde

15 smallish tomatillos- probably about 8 if you had bought them from the store
1 small sweet onion
15 jalepeno slices from a jar
1. 5 TBS fresh squeezed lime juice (about 1 small lime)
1/2 tsp salt
swirl of honey
several shakes of cumin (about 1/4 tsp)

layer in the blender as listed then blend until desired consistency.
