2 ripe hass avocados

3 tomatillos, husked, rinsed and diced (about 1 cup)

1/4 cup chopped sweet onion

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Cut lengthwise around the middle of the avocados, then twist to separate the halves. Remove the pits by striking them with a knife blade, then scoop out the flesh with a spoon and dice.
  2. Combine the avocados, tomatillos, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl and gently mix.

Cook’s Note

Raw tomatillos give this salsa a great tart, acidic flavor.
