This salsa, which could be made very easily any time fresh tomatillos are available, tastes like summertime has come alive in your mouth. I highly recommend it. It is from the aforementioned Vegetable Love cookbook:
Fresh Tomatillo Salsa
2 medium cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and deribbed
4 medium sized tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed well, cored and coarsely chopped
2 scallions, trimmed and cut into 2-inch lengths
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Place garlic and jalapeno in a food processor and chop very fine (I used my hand held one, and it worked great). Add the tomatillos and scallions and process until finely chopped but not pureed.
Transfer the mixture into a bowl and stir in 1/3 cup water and the remaining ingredients. Allow to stand 30 minutes, then adjust the seasoning and serve. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
