Raw Tomatillo and Avocado Salsa


  • 1 pound fresh tomatillos (husked and rinsed)
  • 1 avocado (peeled and pitted)
  • 2 serrano chiles (stem removed, and roughly chopped)
  • 4 clove garlic (peeled and roughly chopped)
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 4 limes (juice only)
  • 1 pinch kosher salt


In a food processor, combine the tomatillos, avocado, serranos, garlic, cilantro, lime juice and a big pinch of salt. Cover and pulse 3 or 4 times to combine ingredients, then let it blend until you can see the seeds. It should be fairly (but not completely) smooth. Taste and season with more salt if needed.
