Grilled Tomatillo Salsa

Tomatillos are delicious raw, but they take on a sweet, smoky flavor when cooked on the grill. This quick salsa makes a great topping for grilled meats and fish and it's excellent with eggs and corn tortillas. If you like, add some diced avocado just before serving.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound tomatillos, husked and rinsed (see Ingredient note)
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, or cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill.

Step 2

Grill tomatillos, onion slices and jalapenos, turning occasionally, until soft and a bit charred, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove vegetables as they are ready. Let cool for about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Peel, seed and stem the jalapenos. Place the tomatillos, onions, jalapenos, lime juice, vinegar, brown sugar and salt in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is well blended but still has a chunky texture. Serve warm or chilled.
