Quick Tomatillo Salsa
How do you infuse a lively green salsa with deeper flavor? Turn on the broiler.
Why This Recipe Works
A simple, tangy tomatillo-based salsa with jalapeño, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice proved ideal for cutting through the richness of our Pork Carnitas. During testing, we found that using canned tomatillos cut down on prep work and that charring half the tomatillos under the broiler tempered their acidity while adding roasted depth to the salsa. Pulsing all the ingredients together in the food processor quickly gave us the slightly chunky texture that we were after.
