Rick Bayless. His pic might seem innocuous, but as soon as you see him on t.v. you'll get the heebie-jeebies, too. Promise.
Anyway, as the weather transitions to warmer temperatures, Shug and I are transitioning back to more fresh and raw fare. This fresh tomatillo salsa is a perfect segue. It's so fresh and GREEN tasting, it'll get you excited for salad season!
Raw Tomatillo Cilantro Salsa
6-7 fresh husked tomatillos, cut into chunks
1 large bunch fresh cilantro, removed from stalks
1-2 garlic cloves, cleaned and depending on preference
2 serrano chiles, seeded if you can't take the heat*
Generous pinch of salt
Throw all this fresh goodness into your food processor. Pulse until well blended. Serve with chips and raw veggie slices. Try to leave room for dinner!
*When chopping hot chiles, wear plastic gloves if you have sensitive skin. The capsaicin in the chiles is an irritant even to the toughest skin, but to sensitive kids it can be excruciating to get on your fingers. And, of course, don't rub your damn eyeballs after handing these chiles...
