Behold, the tomatillo! In case you haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying an enchilada smothered in a piquant, fresh house green sauce, here’s your shot at culinary redemption! Do not be perplexed by these smaller, greener cousins of the traditional red tomato; tomatillos are an entirely different fruit and are a staple of Mexican cuisine. When the tomatillo is used in a salsa, the end result is a slightly cooler, green-hued salsa verde. This salsa verde recipe from closetcooking.com calls for roasting or grilling of the tomatillos, jalapenos and onions beforehand to bring out their innate flavor, and the end result is a deliciously refreshing salsa verde that will change your life (or at least your appetizer spread)!
