Fish tacos with tomatillo avocado salsa

We are in the middle of summer and our vegetables are getting ripe and ready to make it to the dinner table. For
most of us that don’t have the luxury of having our own garden, this is time to hit the farmers markets or your
favorite grocery store to get your fresh vegetables and fruits.

This is definitely my favorite time of the year to be out doors enjoying the sun and enjoying the true gifts of
life. Feeding your spiritual soul and taking time out for yourself and your loved ones. Taking care of what really
matters and learning how to make healthy choices for your health and at meal times. Talk to the people that grow
and sell fresh products, they can teach you so much about nutrition, how to pick and prepare and store your
vegetables. I know that tomatoes will ripen faster and last longer if you turn them upside down and don’t
refrigerate. Believe me, I picked tomatoes for a living, this I do know. You’ll have the best looking, juicy
tomatoes you’ll want to eat by itself. Just make sure you save some for your salad. As for tomatillo’s, its got a
husk that raps the Tomatillo that needs to be peeled off and rinsed before you prepare this recipe. So, lets get
started…..
