Let it snow

Let us call it Winter's first snow. We did have some snow a few weeks ago, but since the Christmas decorations were not up yet I am calling privilege and saying today it the first snow.

Were we live-
we barley qualify for the Dusting / 1-3 inch line. In fact, I think we are the line. However, WBZ is calling it the first winter storm so lets go with it. With the snow outside it would seem to be a perfect time to talk about the salsa verde I made about a month ago. It is loosely based upon the recipe at Kalyn's Kitchen for Salsa Verde with Green Tomatoes, Avocados, and Cilantro.

The conundrum we had at the end of the summer was that the tomatoes left in the garden had not ripened. With Fall coming we could not risk loosing them. The sou chef made the call and she picked the few remaining tomatoes.

The ingredients were simple enough to pull together, a few tomatillos, small onion, the green tomatoes, avocados and a chili pepper. The red tomato was added for some color.

All of the vegies got rough chopped and the limes were reamed for the juice.

To the veggies, I added some sea salt, some olive oil, about a teaspoon of garlic, chopped fresh parsley and mixed it all up.

We plated it up in a chip dish with contrasting chips and the salsa in the middle.

so lonely, yet so delicious
