Tomatillo Avocado Salsa Recipe

Tomatillos, best known for their essential contribution to green enchilada sauce and salsa verde, are small round members of the nightshade family, making them relatives to tomatoes, eggplants, and potatoes. Tomatillos offer a uniquely tart flavor and beautiful green color that spices up a recipe.

Creamy sauces and dips are some of my favorite low-carb recipes to make on a ketogenic diet. Fat heavy dressings are an a quick and easy way to add extra fats to any meal. Generally, they will keep for 3 to 5 days refrigerated in an air tight container. One can bring a portion of sauce or in this case, salsa, in a packed lunch and enjoy it with with a protein source and leafy green vegetable or steamed broccoli or cauliflower.
