Nonion Salser

10 Mar

Salsa without garlic or onions?  It can’t be done!  Well sometimes it feels good to be wrong 😀  This recipe mimics standard pico while allowing you to forgo the onion breath (& bad karma).  The original recipe (referenced below) calls for 4-6 tomatoes (I only had 1 1/2 to work with), an optional habanero pepper, & a cap full of tequilla (omitted from my batch for obvious reasons).

Nononion Salser/Pico

*10 tomatillos
*2 tomatoes
*2 jalapenos
*lots of fresh cilantro
*freshly ground black pepper to taste
*kosher salt to taste
*juice of 1 medium lime

Broil/grill the veggies for 1-2 minutes/until just beginning to char.  Toss into blender with remaining ingredients.  Puree as fine/chunky as you prefer.  Eat!  (Note: Letting the mixture sit a few hours will allow the ingredients to meld and improve the flavor.)

    Ok..need to try that one. The grill, charred taste has to be good. Tomatillas too, I like. And just like when I make my own pico…letting it set brings out more flavor..especially the cilantro.
