Ingredients
  1. 8-10 medium/large tomatillos (increase to 12-15 if they are small, the size of cherry tomatoes)
  2. 1/4-1/2 small white onion
  3. fresh or jar minced garlic (to taste)
  4. sea salt (to taste)
  5. fresh or dried cilantro (optional)
  6. crushed red pepper (optional)
  7. 1/4 tsp jalapeno juice (optional: I use the juice in the Old El Paso sliced jalapenos jar.)
  8. minced onion (optional)
Instructions
  1. Chop up tomatillos and onions in preferred manner. (See notes.)
  2. Blend in bowl with garlic and salt, to taste.
  3. If desired, add optional ingredients to taste.
  4. Chill before serving.
Notes
  1. For a chunkier salsa, I use a slap chopper/knife to cut the tomatillos and onion. For a less chunky version, I use my small Ninja/Bullet.
  2. This is amazing as a topping on pizza, chicken, pork, tacos, etc.
