It's the Time of the Season for Verde

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa. Mexican green tomatoes. Salsa Verde. Oven roasted tomatillos, onion, garlic, jalapenos, blended with lime juice, cilantro, salt and 1/4 cup of water or broth and all the roasting juices. Make it with less heat in the summer and it becomes a light, citrus-y tart tasting fresh condiment to add to just about anything, including burgers, chicken or marinate steak in it. Amazing with shrimp! Hot or cold, stir it in rice, add it to eggs, dip chips in it!

Tomatillos are in season early August and are still a bit hard to find anywhere so I blend a big batch when I can and we enjoy it all week.
