Instead of baking a batch of brownies (because I was terrified I'll eat them all myself!), I decided to make something bright and fresh and tropical over the snowed-in weekend.
It all started with the tomatillos I received in my weekly order of Washington Green Grocer produce. I've been a customer for two years and LOVE getting weekly deliveries of vegetables and fruits. I then added the sweetness of the pineapple, the crunch of the cucumber and the smooth buttery texture of the avocado!
Who's ready for salsa!?
Pineapple, Cucumber & Tomatillo Salsa: Tropical Snack For The Winter
4 tomatillos charred in a dry skillet or under the broiler
1/2 large cucumber, peeled, diced
1-2 tablespoons chopped white onion
1 avocado, diced
1 cup chopped fresh pineapple and its juices
salt to taste
1 tablespoon Meyer lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1. Add charred tomatillos to a food processor and blender and turn it into chunky sauce.
2. In a large bowl add the rest of the ingredients and tomatillos. Combine. Taste for salt.
3. Eat with tortilla chips!
Can't you imagine yourself on a beach with this salsa, maybe a watermelon mojito and perhaps a pool boy!? :)
