Tomatillo Salsa

I absolutely love this salsa. I could eat it by the bucket, my husband, too. This recipe is courtesy of Sara Moulton and can be found in her Everyday Family Dinners cookbook. I would double or triple this recipe because you're going to love it.

2 large tomatillos (about 6 to 7 ounces)
2 medium scallions
1 small jalapeno chile
1/4 cup firmly packed cilantro leaves and stems
2 Tbsps vegetable oil
2 tsps fresh lime juice
2 dmall garlic cloves
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Remove the papery husk, rinse and thickly slice tomatillos (about 1 and 1/2 cups). Trim and thickly slice the white and light green parts of the scallion (about 1/4 cup) and coarsely chop the jalepeno (about 2 tsps). Transfer the tomatillos, scallions, jalapeno, and cilantro to a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Add the vegetable oil and lime juice and press in the garlic (about 2 tsps).

Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Trasfer to a bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
