I overheard two women at the gym discussing what they had served for dinner, and one mentioned a salsa that sounded intriguing. When I asked the women what kind of chicken they served their families, one said organic and the other said Perdue.
The woman who serves organic chicken recommended a salsa made with tomatillos (photo) and watermelon, seasoned with cumin. That's all I remember, even though I asked her to repeat the recipe a couple of days later.
At Corrado's in Clifton, the tomatillos were rotten, but I found some nice ones at Compare Foods in Passaic. They also are available at Hackensack Market on Passaic Street in Hackensack. They are small, green tomatoes that come in a husk. The taste is unusual and pleasantly sour.
I chopped up four tomatillos (without the husk, stem or stem base) and a thick, half-slice of a large, seedless watermelon. I added two or three nice pinches of ground cumin, some fresh lemon juice, a little chopped jalapeno pepper without seeds, and chopped cilantro from the garden. I guess you could add ripe tomato or onion or both.
I had some with breakfast this morning, alongside my sardine, tomato and cheese sandwich. Wonderful. This salsa would be great with fish, too.
