Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

We love the salsa verde at Laughing Planet.  I especially love it’s surprising ginger kick.  The ginger is a fragrant and mildly spicy addition to this salsa.  The grapes help to balance out the tartness of the tomatillos.  This is as close as I could get to their salsa verde.

  • 10 tomatillos, papery husks removed
  • 1/2 C. chopped, white onion
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 C. fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded (leave them in if you like heat)
  • 7-10 sweet grapes
  • 1 inch piece of peeled ginger, chopped
  • 1/2 t. salt

Cut the tomatillos in half and place them on a baking sheet.  Broil them on the top rack of the oven for about 5-8 minutes, or until the skins begin to char.

Place the tomatillos in a food processor with the onion, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno, ginger, grapes, and salt.  Process until fairly smooth.  Chill until ready to serve.

    I see the tomatillos at the produce market, but have never bought any. They sort of scared me. I will give it a try!
