Healthy Creamy Tomatillo Salsa or Dressing

So we had Birthday dinner on Sunday for Max who turned 1 and Britney who turned 30. My oldest child and youngest grand child. Family times are sweet. It was a nice evening and afternoon. We had healthy yummy food. This is one of the things that we served. It goes well on vegetables, salad, crackers, Mexican food or french dip sandwiches. :) Tomatillo's add a yummy flavor to the dressing. It was nice to make a healthy version of it.


1 lb of tomatillos (husks off)
5 cloves of garlic
1 serrano chili
1 T olive oil
1/2 C fresh cilantro washed
juice of one lime
1/4 C Greek plain yogurt
salt to taste preference

Directions makes about 1 1/2 Cups 

1.  Place a skillet on the stove on medium heat. When it gets hot put tomatillos, garlic, chili and oil in the skillet. Stir often until the tomatillos start to burst and the other vegetables start to turn slightly golden. 
2. Take off the stove and let cool. Take the stem off the chili and the peel off the garlic. Take the seeds out of the chili if you want it less spicy.
3. Put the vegetables into the blender. Then put in cilantro, lime juice and yogurt. Pulse until creamy and mostly smooth. It will have some texture to it still. Salt to desired preference. 
4. Serve or store in the fridge covered until ready to serve.    

Happy Birthday! We love you!
