Homemade Tomatillo and Tomato Salsa
My doctor emailed me yesterday to tell me the results of my blood test last week and apparently my vitamin D level is “severely low” so she sent a prescription to the pharmacy. I’m assuming she sent vitamin D supplements? And in that case, I feel like I can just buy a big vitamin D supplement jar at Costco?
Probably going to have to check into that but that makes me sad about our generation and having low vitamin D. We’re mostly all desk job folks so of course our vitamin D levels are going to be low! I mean, I know I can get it from eating foods with high vitamin D levels but I also think to cure my vitamin D level shortage is to go on a long beach holiday for 3 months.
Now this homemade tomatillo and tomato salsa is basically like having a party in the sun. Whenever I make salsas or any kind of dips for that matter, I just think of having a pool party or a picnic. It’s the ultimate snack and goes great with everything else you have on the table.
I switched up the classic salsa by adding tomatillos in this. I love cooking with tomatillos and it’s actually something I feel like I should do more. They’re such an underrated vegetable and should totally be utilized more in dishes. Case in point: my homemade salsa verde is one of our favs!
This homemade tomatillo and tomato salsa is ridiculously easy to make; you literally throw everything in the food processor, turn it on, and it’s done! Grab some tortilla chips, beers, and get ready to snack!
