Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Tomatillo salsa, also known as salsa verde, may the lesser-known sibling of tomato salsa—at least on American tables—but its bright, bracing flavor perks up a whole host of Mexican foods. And it can be ready in only 15 minutes.
Why This Recipe Works
For a tangy, well-balanced tomatillo salsa recipe that highlighted the green, citrusy notes of the fruit and that paired nicely with a variety of Mexican dishes, we briefly broiled whole husked tomatillos to soften their firm texture and tame their acidity. A few quick pulses in a food processor along with onion, garlic, jalapeño chile, cilantro, and lime juice and the salsa was ready to serve.
