Karielyn's Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some of my expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Tomatillos: You will need to peel off the paper-thin peeling from the outside of the tomatillo, then wash the sticky residue off before cutting them into quartered pieces and adding to the food processor.
Onion: I used a white onion in this recipe but you could use your favorite variety with the exception of a sweet onion since this is a savory recipe.
Cilantro: Make sure it's fresh and add the leaves and stems.
Lime Juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice will give the best flavor and nutrients since it hasn't been pasteurized, but you could also use store-bought organic lime juice. Also, I like to use 1/4 cup because I like my salsa tangy, but if you don't, just reduce the amount to 1/8 cup.
Avocado Oil: This can be substituted with organic extra-virgin olive oil in the same amount.
Jalapeno: I like to use a full jalapeno because I like my salsa spicy, but you can reduce to 1/2 jalapeno or even omit if you don't like spicy foods or will be serving this to children. In addition, you may want to try my classic Raw Tomatillo Salsa Verde that's made without jalapenos.
Himalayan Pink Salt: This is my salt of preference, however, it can always be substituted with sea salt.
