This is a fantastic end of summer raw salad that take just a few minutes to throw together. This has sweet, sour, salt, spice, and creamy all in one simple recipe. This was really inspired by our garden and the tomatillos that were growing crazy. I’d already made salsa, and I wanted to use them in a way I haven’t in a long time and that was quick pickle simply made of white balsamic and salt. I didn’t even heat the vinegar up to keep the integrity of the thinly sliced tomatillo intact. I hope you enjoy the light and refreshing salad that is bound to make anyone drool!

12 tomatillos sliced 1/8 thick
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp of white balsamic
1 large avocado sliced and cookie cutter with small ring mold
10 strawberries sliced
6 figs sliced

1 tbsp of red peppercorns crushed
1 oz of micro cilantro and beets
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

For the Tomatillo,

In a bowl add sliced thin tomatillos with white balsamic and salt. Let it marinade for 10-15 minutes while you get everything else ready.

To finish,

Add sliced-marinated tomatillos to the plate. Then add avocado slices and season with salt. Add the strawberries and figs. Take some of the juice from the tomatillos and spoon over everything. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over everything. Season everything with crushed red peppercorns and a another pinch of salt. Finish with micro cilantro and beets. Serve and enjoy this easy summer salad!
