Grilled Tomatillo Salsa

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/grilled_tomatillo_salsa.html

From EatingWell:  Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

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.

4 servings, 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill.
  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.
  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.
