  • 1 pound tomatillos, husks and stems removed
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup diced red onions
  • 1 tablespoon of minced jalapeño or more to taste
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon of agave syrup
  • Juice of 1 lime


  1. Preheat the broiler on high, place tomatillos on a baking sheet and broil for 8-10 minutes, until the tops of the tomatillos are lightly charred. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Pulse tomatillos in a blender or food processor until pureed but still a little chunky. Transfer mixture to a bowl.
  2. Add the apples, onions, jalapeños, cilantro, agave and lime juice to the tomatillos and mix thoroughly.
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
