Recipe by Chef John
"This spectacularly simple green sauce may be the perfect summer condiment. It requires no cooking, only takes 10 to 15 minutes to make, looks gorgeous, and tastes amazing with anything grilled and most things that aren't. Spoon over grilled pork tacos, grilled meats, or serve with chips."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

fresh tomatillos - husked, rinsed, and halved
thinly sliced serrano chiles, or to taste
ripe avocado - halved, seeded, and flesh scooped out of peel
packed cilantro leaves
salt to taste
This was a good recipe. It needs something though. Next time I will try an onion and some garlic. Very quick, little prep, a must try.
I'm sorry but I didn't have the same excitement for this salsa as the others did. I will say it does taste better by itself then with chips. This might be good on tacos or used as a sauce on meats for us, other than a salsa for chips. Has too much tang, maybe too much lime.
Holy mackerel delicious. I made it from the video, so there were no measurements yet - and I don't think there's a way to mess this up. I am trying to avoid eating the entire batch now before I use it on dinner. It's highly acidic, but amazingly fresh tasting and creamy. I will be making this regularly.
Loved it ,,, so easy to make.. very tasty
I Love this recipe. Nice change from regular salsa. I added a little onion and some garlic. I didn't have Serrano peppers so I used jalapenos instead.
You are so right Chef John .... absolutely delicious! Soooo simple/easy too. Will certaintly add this to my collection. 7/12/13
This salsa is ALWAYS a hit. Top it on tacos or use it as a dip. Yummmmm.
So good! I doubled the recipe and added a clove of garlic. Used it to spice up leftover turkey tacos. It's easy to make and scrumptious. I used it again in the morning on my eggs.
