A Serendipitous Green Salsa

This winter, a guy from Mexico named Victor has been working with Ernesto on the xmas lights. Sometimes when he comes to our house in the mornings he brings us food that his wife has made: Tortas, tamales, strawberries and cream desert. We also have been to their house for pozole and let me tell you, she knows how to cook. So when Ernesto came home from work one day and said Victor told him about a tomatillo salsa we should try, I got to chopping right away!
This recipe is different than the salsa verde we usually make. It is raw and the crunch of the tomatillo is so good. Its tart and tangy, and mixed with the smoothness of avocados and the other ingredients make an interesting texture. The flavor is muy rica tambien! It is hard to stop eating it!
Fresh Tomatillo and Avocado Salsa
2 firm avocados, cubed
1 small white onion, chopped
4-5 tomatillos, chopped
3-4 serrano peppers, diced
handful of cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
squirt of fresh lime
This is a really quick treat to make and healthy too!
