That's a good idea. I was just thinking about what to do with the tomatoes and peppers coming out of the garden. The tomatillos are starting to produce well, too.

This is from yesterday; DH brought in eight more tomatillos this morning.

Today's harvest

Mmmm. Salsa verde, yum! I haven't grown tomatillos, will have to give it a shot.

I used up most of my cherry toms in tomato soup (dang, that stuff is good) and I think I'm on the downswing. The plants look like heck, though there's a few hangers-on that are still ripening.

I dont remember what variety of tomatillos I got , but they are about the size of apples. I had to alter my recipe to account for their size.

Making a cole slaw today. I think I will buzz up a thawed chile in the dressing.

Salsa verde! Tomatillos have a nice, almost citrusy flavor. The salsa verde I've had was not hot, just very light and refreshing. Great on enchiladas.
