Tomatillo Salsa Verde, like pickled red onions, is a great condiment for Mexican food. The slightly acidic tomatillos make a mild green sauce that is perfect with delicate fish tacos.
The tomatillos that Ample Bites used in the preparation of this salsa came from the Ample Bite Vegetable Farm. Tomatillos look like green tomatoes that are encased in a thin husk but they taste nothing like tomatoes.
