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.

What to Serve with Tomatillo Avocado Salsa

This tomatillo avocado salsa recipe was great on a plate of slow cooked beef and sautéed leafy greens from our garden.

Whenever you make keto burger recipes, be sure to serve with this salsa! I also enjoy it on top of a cheesy ground beef taco skillet.

Serve on top of a Three Cheese Keto Omelette and you won’t regret it.

I know you’ll also like the salsa with this Mexican Omelette recipe.

It can also be used as a dip on celery sticks or cucumber slices. Check out this list of other low-carb dip recipes for more ideas!
