tomatillasMy sister came for a visit and brought these from her garden.

I thought I’d add them to some of my salsa.

blendI peeled off the husks, washed them and placed them in the blender.

addThen I stirred the puree into my salsa. This is also where I could have pureed the cilantro if I hadn’t already added it. There’s always more experimenting to be done next year! There you have yet another ingredient to try for your fresh/frozen Snob Salsa. Happy concocting!

    So, did you like the taste the tomatillos added? Next time you’re up I’ll have to let you taste the creamy tomatillo ranch dressing. It tastes great on taco salad, tacos and anyplace you might use sour cream with Mexican/Southwestern food. Yum. I think it tastes better with chicken than ground beef. I haven’t tried it with beef strips, yet.

    It added a bit of a mildly sweet flavor. It was good. I was saving some to try the creamy tomatillo ranch dressing but the baby thought is was oh so fun to husk them and find a “base-a-ball”. We just found one behind the piano this morning!
