Green Salsa

Blanca made two types of Green Salsa to serve with her Homemade Tortillas.  One of the Green Salsa is plain while the other Green Salsa has avocado added to it.  The avocado adds creaminess to the Green Salsa.  If you like this recipe, you should also check Blanca’s recipe on Red Salsa too.

Green tomato is also called tomatillo.  It is also known as husk tomato, husk cherry, Mexican tomato, jamberry or ground cherry.  Tomatillo in Mexico means ‘little tomato’.  The tomatillo fruit is surrounded by a paper-like husk, hence the name husk tomato.  Tomatillos are the key ingredient in fresh and cooked LatinAmerican green sauces.
