This Mexican-inspired salsa adds amazing flavor to steak, chicken and pork. Spoon it right over grilled meat or serve as a side sauce.


  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound fresh tomatillos (about 12), husks removed and coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 red or green jalapeño pepper
  • Sea salt


  1. Place the olive oil in a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the tomatillos and garlic and cook, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Uncover the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes before removing pan from heat and allowing to cool to room temperature.
  3. Transfer the tomatillo mixture into a bowl along with the avocado, cilantro, red wine vinegar, jalapeño and a few pinches of salt. Mix well to combine.
