Greeeeen Salsa!!!

Going Greeen with Salsa.....
I got this recipe from my friend Mina. It tastes absolutely wonderful and soooooooooooooo easy to make. The base of this is Tomatillos. They are vailable almost year round in the markets.
They are different from Green Tomatoes. It comes wrapped in a green dry covering. It is very sticky. You have to wash it well after you peel the covering.
You need
A Food Processor
Tomatillos - 6 to 7 Big ones (chopped in 4s)
Green Bell Pepper - 2
Spring Onions - 10
Cilantro - 2 handfuls
Garlic Cloves - 5 to 6
Vinegar - 1/2 cup
Salt as needed
Jalapeno- 2 (1 seeded, and I un seeded)
(Your choice, depending on how spicy you want you can increase the amount or decrease it or choose to de seed both also)
--->After washing all the veggies, just add everything except the spring onions in to the food processor and run it until it becomes a soggy paste.
--->chop the spring onions and add them to the soggy paste and run it once more.
--->Remember to add salt :)
--->Enjoy with some crispy Tortilla Chips. We had it with both blue corn tortillas and White Corn Tortilla....
My husband uses this as a spread for his breakfast bread and also as a topping for his salad.
