Green Tomatillo Salsa

Green Tomatillo salsa just looks like summer doesn’t it? I love regular tomato salsa but tomatillo salsa is so tangy and fresh. This recipe is super easy and mess free. Peel and roast your tomatillos on a hot pan over the stove. There’s no need for oil or any seasonings. You want to achieve that roasted smoky flavor and cook the tomatillos at the same time.
