I had a get together last night at my house, and in the midst of a hectic day, I needed to pull something together quick.  But I also wanted something fresh that would allow me to use my abundance of produce from my CSA (community supported agriculture) share.

ANSWER: Tomatillo Salsa and Basic Hummus with fresh veggies.  It was so, so good and super easy…so I figured it was worth sharing!

Tomatillo Salsa

1 quart of fresh tomatillos

1 small red pepper

2-3 cloves of garlic

Juice of 1/2 lime

3 tablespoons of Cilantro

1 small tomato

Couple dashes of salt

Remove husk from tomatillos and rinse in warm water to remove sticky residue.  Roast tomatillos and red peppers on 400 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes.  Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on low to medium speed.  (I like a bit of a chunky salsa, so adjust speed accordingly).

And that’s it!  Besides the roasting (which is primarily hands off time), we’re talking 5 minutes tops for this recipe.

I served this with organic blue corn tortilla chips, but this would also be so delicious topped on eggs or in a black bean burrito.

For the hummus, check out my recipe here – – I just left off the avocado and jalapeno, and added a bit more lemon.  To serve, I cut up fresh cucumber, celery and tomatoes.  Easy, peasy.
