Salma and Savannah’s Salsa

Posted By Sara Moulton On January 31, 2011 @ 3:20 pm In Featured Recipe,Hors d'Oeuvres,Recipes | 1 Comment

This recipe comes from my friend Sally Villagomez. Many years ago I taped a holiday special with her family for my show “Cooking Live,” on the Food Channel. We spent a whole day making the most delicious tamales which are featured in my first cookbook, Sara Moulton Cooks at Home (Broadway Books, 2002). I recently bumped into another member of Sally’s family, Yolanda Meza when I was judging the “Aetna Healthy Food Fight” in Cucamonga, CA and Yolanda brought this delicious salsa, courtesy of Sally which I shared with the other judges. We absolutely inhaled it, it was so delicious. Sally has named the salsa after her two grand daughters.

12 large tomatillos, husks discarded and rinsed
1 to 2 Serrano chiles
4 large ripe Hass avocados
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion (scallions)
tortilla chips

Boil the tomatillos and chiles until tender. Transfer to a blender and puree. Peel, seed, and cut the avocados into chunks. Transfer the tomatillo puree to a bowl and stir in the cilantro, chopped onion, and avocados. Add salt to taste and serve with tortilla chips.
