  • Choose tomatillos that are firm and bright green.
  • Select avocados that are ripe, but not overly soft.

  • Tomatillos: Use green tomatoes instead. This substitution will still give the salsa a tart flavor, while providing a slightly sweeter taste.
  • Serrano pepper: Use jalapeno pepper instead. This substitution will reduce the spiciness of the salsa, while still providing a mild kick of flavor.

Mango Salsa Replace the tomatillos with 123 grams of mango (4 mangoes), and replace the avocado with 500 grams of mango (3 mangoes). Blend until smooth.
