    cookiedog's Note:

    This is how I usually make my salsa verde. You might try charring the tomatillos on a comal or dry frying pan instead of boiling them in the water for a roasted flavor. As written, it is a fairly mild salsa, so I recommend adjusting heat to taste. Recipe is from Vegetarian Planet.

      Roasted the tomatillos & 5 partially-seeded jalapenos & made otherwise as directed (excluding the sugar). Out standing! Smoky, mildly tart, fresh tasting with the garlic and the cilantro & diced onion. Definitely a keeper! Thank you cookiedog.

      This was so tasty! I used 4 jalapeno peppers for a little extra heat. I had to use canned tomatillos, as fresh are a bit scarce around here, but it was still very good. I'll make this often. Thanks cookiedog!
