Serves 8 (1/4 cup portions)
1 pound tomatillos (6-8)
6 radishes, shredded
3 celery stalks, minced
1 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
- Peel the husk off the tomatillos. Rinse them under cold water to remove the stickiness. Dice all but two tomatillos.
- Place the remaining tomatillos in a food processor or blender. Process/blend until they are smooth.
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight, to let the flavors blend together.
- Optional: add 1/2 to 1 minced jalapeno (not used in the above picture.)
Serve on fish, chicken or turkey. Use as a topping on tacos and burritos. Serve as a salsa with chips.
