Tomatillos, the tart green Mexican fruit, make delicious salsa, and are also great in braised dishes. They pair well with chicken, pork, and meaty fish.
DiningDiva makes a simple sauce with uncooked tomatillos to serve over grilled chicken or pork tenderloin: In a blender or food processor, blend tomatillos, white onion, a garlic clove or two, a serrano chile with its seeds, a big handful of cilantro, and salt to taste until somewhat smooth with some small chunks for texture. Taste and add more salt or a bit of sugar if needed.
Several hounds make a quick salsa by roasting or grilling tomatillos, white onion, and green chiles, and blending with cilantro. Or try CHOW’s Smooth Salsa Verde.
