Like tomatoes and eggplants, tomatillos are also part of the nightshade family. They are green in color with a visual likeness to an unripened tomato. There is a husk that surrounds their skin and a bright tartness that isn’t found in the sweetness of a vine-ripened tomato. Due to this unique flavor, the tomatillo, is actually closer botanically to a gooseberry than a tomato. Tomatillos, because they are so tart, typically aren’t eaten plain / own their own, so we have put together a few recipes for you to try. From a simple salad to salsas, we hope you enjoy the tomatillo!
