Recipe: Raw Tomatillo Salsa
Tomatillo salsa (aka salsa verde) is very common in Mexican and Latin American cuisine – sometimes spicy, sometimes sweet. Though they’re typically green, there’s also a purple variety that tastes very similar.
Usually the best way to bring out the sweet flavor of tomatillos is by roasting them – but boiling is not uncommon either. Here, the tomatillos are raw and with a touch of honey, the texture and flavor are both unique.
