Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Roasted Tomatillo and Cilantro Seed Salsa

I finally got a great harvest from my tomatillo plants. The fruit is so sweet you can bite it like an apple!

I saw a lot of recipes for tomatillo salsa that involved boiling/sauteing, but they did not seem too interesting.

So I improvised this roasted tomatillo salsa version and was very happy with the result.

This salsa is great with fish or as a topping for some crunchy romaine lettuce or as a dip for some thinly sliced radishes.
