My Go-To Salsa

By Andrew Zimmern

This fresh tomatillo salsa has a tangy, herby, citrusy flavor with an extra kick from the jalapenos and poblanos chiles. It’s one of my favorites, it’ll truly brighten up any meal. Try adding chopped or smashed avocado for a twist.

Instructions

SERVINGS: MAKES 4 CUPS
TOTAL TIME: 35 MINUTES

In a medium bowl, mix the onions with the kosher salt and let stand.

Roast the poblanos and jalapeño directly over a gas flame or under the broiler for 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally, until charred all over. Transfer the poblanos and jalapeños to a bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and let steam for 10 minutes. Peel and seed, then transfer to a blender.

Add the tomatillos, cilantro, mint, garlic and lime juice, and process until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Drain the onions and stir into the bowl. Season the salsa with salt, if necessary. Serve.

MAKE AHEAD  The tomatillo salsa can be refrigerated for up to 4 hours.
