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.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 pound  tomatillos, husked and rinsed (see Ingredient note)
1   small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2   jalapeno peppers
1 tablespoon  lime juice
1 tablespoon  rice vinegar or cider vinegar
2 teaspoons  dark brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon  salt, or to taste

Ingredient Note:  Tomatillos look like small green tomatoes covered by a parchment-like husk. Often found in salsas and salads, they can be used raw but cooking enhances the flavor and softens the tough outer skin. Look for them near the tomatoes in markets.

DIRECTIONS
Preheat grill.


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.


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.
