This raw salsa, "Salsa verde cruda", can be thrown together in no time. Since it is made with tomatillos rather then tomatoes, it's less sweet and more refreshing.


10 tomatillos, husked and rinsed 300 g
2 cloves garlic
1/4 jalapeño pepper, fresh, chopped 4 g
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped 4 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the vegetables.


  1. Coarsely chop the tomatillos, then purée with the remaining ingredients, using a blender, until smooth.
  2. Salt to taste then serve.


For less spiciness, reduce the amount of jalapeno, or mix in a few avocado slices.
