Gilled Green Salsa


Prepare to Pucker!

Salsa on the grill

It is that crazy time of year when the garden is producing more peppers than I know what to do with.  One of my favorite garden fresh items is Green Salsa.  I have made this recipe with both green tomatoes and tomatillos and find that both pack a pretty sensational citrusy punch. Now you may say to yourself as you watch the video I've thrown together that given the amount of lime I put in my salsa the punch is justified.  You may be right, but if you're looking for a green salsa that will compete with any you've ever had before, you come to the right place.

Use the salsa in place of enchilada sauce for the tastiest green chicken enchilada in the known universe.  I will focus on that recipe another week.  For now grab some chips, pork rinds, or a couple quesadillas, some sour cream, and get ready for the best “gleaking” experience possible.  Don't forget to wash your fruits and vegetables. If you are out in the woods, be sure to filter your water before washing. Straw Filter of Life found here.

The salsa makes a great sauce added to most any meat in your Dutch oven for a slow cooked green chili recipe. You can even go for a hike while you wait.  Don't forget your No Tie Laces.  

In most cases, I put the salsa in the fridge and a pretty big bowl rarely makes it more than a day at my house. However, if your garden went super crazy this year it's easy to bottle and put in the pantry if you're into that sort of thing. It never hurts to have green salsa on the shelf. 

Did I happen to mention how incredibly tasty this stuff is when combined with sour cream?  Be happy, be creative, Share your adventures and include the kids!
