  1. Cut the tomatillos in half, and roughly dice. Set aside. Deseed the jalapeno and cut into strips.
  2. Mix the jalapeno and the tomatillo together, sprinkle with salt and chop until combined. Add the cilantro leaves and continue to chop everything together until it resembles a rough slurry.
  3. Using the flat of your knife, remove to a bowl and stir in the lime juice. Let sit in a cool place for 5-10 minutes for the flavors to blend. Taste for salt and serve.
