Made with tomatillos, fresh herbs, chiles, and jalapeños, this salsa has a vibrant color and a subtle heat. It is also extremely versatile and can be used for topping chicken or fish or simply as a dip for chips. Don't worry if you've never worked with tomatillos before, you can find them in almost any supermarket. To prepare them, simply peel off the outer husks.
