Ingredients
  • 1 pound tomatillos (about 12), husked and rinsed
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the tomatillos, apples, garlic, jalapenos and onion on a baking sheet; toss with the olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Roast until the tomatillos are softened and slightly charred, about 20 minutes. Peel the garlic. Let the roasted vegetable mixture cool to room temperature.

  • Puree the roasted vegetable mixture and cilantro in a blender until smooth. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons water to loosen, if needed. Season with salt and pepper.

If you like more spice, add a serrano chile to this salsa."
