Summer

Summer is here and I have been riding my motorcycle which means I haven’t been home much. Saying that I also have not been making any new posts. We have been enjoying vegetables from our garden which includes squash, tomatoes, cantaloupe and tomatillos as well as some great mint, basil, dill and tarragon.

A great easy and tasty salad is made with tomatillos as follows:

½ lb. Fresh tomatillos, husked & rinsed
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 c. cilantro leaves
2 tsp. Finely chopped shallot
2 tsp. Fresh lime juice

Thinly slice tomatillos and toss with cilantro, shallot, lime juice, remaining 2 tbsp oil, and salt & pepper to taste.

Another variation is to take the same number of tomatillos and tomatoes, slice them thinly and toss with oil & lime juice or white wine vinegar.
