It’s salsa time! There are tons of salsa recipes that you could make with what you get in the share, but here is an example.

Roasted Tomato and Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

Ingredients: You can easily modify this recipe based on the amount of ingredients you have!

  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 4-5 tomatillos
  • 1/3 small onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1-2 jalapenos
  • 10-12 sprigs cilantro
  • pinch of salt
  • squeeze of lime
Husk the tomatillos and then rinse both the tomatoes and tomatillos.  I usually remove the stems from both of them knowing that any juices leftover in the roasting pan will go into the blender.
Roast the tomatoes and tomatillos in a 400F oven for 20-25 minutes.
Add the roasted tomatoes and tomatillos to a blender along with 1/3 small onion, 1 peeled garlic clove, 1 rinsed and de-stemmed jalapeno (or less for a milder version), 10-12 sprigs rinsed cilantro.  Combine well (I usually leave it a bit chunky.)
Take a taste for seasoning.  I added another 1/2 jalapeno, a pinch of salt, and a generous squeeze of lime.
Serve immediately or chill in the fridge for a bit before serving.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge where they will keep for a few days.
