Instructions

Tomatillo Salsa

  • Move oven rack to top position (about 6" from broiler element) and preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Transfer to food processor or bowl and add cilantro, lime juice and ¼ teaspoon salt. Process or blend (with immersion blender) until roughly chopped or desired consistency. Season with reserved jalapeno seeds and salt to taste. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Fresh Pineapple Salsa

  • Combine pineapple, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice in a small bowl. Season with salt, pepper and reserved jalapeno seeds to taste. Let salsa sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.

  • Mix tomatoes with ½ teaspoon salt in small colander. Allow to drain for 15 minutes. Transfer tomatoes to a small bowl and toss with onion, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

Reserve jalapeno seeds to add to finished salsa, to add heat to taste.
