Great Ways to Use Tomatillos

Add Them to Salads

The tangy flavor of tomatillos is delightful in all kinds of salads, but it's particularly scrumptious with fruits like berries and watermelon. Chiffonade some fresh mint or basil and throw in a handful of wilted kale for a super nutritious and delicious lunch.

Make Tomatillo Salad Dressing

Tomatillos are fabulous in any part of the salad, including the dressing. Use them instead of citrus fruits like lemon and lime in any standard recipe, or make a creamy, zesty vegan tomatillo ranch for everything from salads, to sandwiches, to carrot stick dipping.

Make Soup

With tomatillos, a healthy variety of vegetables and some veggie stock, you can make a fabulous tomatillo soup. Try it warm or cold like gazpacho on a hot summer day.
