I hope you all had a Happy Diwali!
For today’s recipe we’re jet setting from Punjab (that anjeer barfi still has me salivating) to Mexico (my latest travel obsession) for a light, delicious and festive tomatillo salsa.
During my latest farmer’s market adventure, I came across these eye-popping purple tomatillos! I had ever seen anything like these before. Aren’t they fabulous!? Aside from their distinctive technicolor hue, they’re prepared pretty much the same way green tomatillos are (at least that’s what the guy at the produce stand told me, ha!). They’re just a tad sweeter and of course give the classic Mexican salsa verde recipe a vibrant purple twist.
I love a side of tomatillo salsa with my super guac raw burrito of course, but it’s also awesome as a light fat free salad dressing and even as a dip with raw marinated zucchini “chips”.

Luvin’ the variety of flavors of the dips you make. More please!
A great appetizer for parties!
This is how I like it! Salsa minus the preservatives.
I like it sweet and spicy!
I’ve never seen purple tomatillos. I hope there’s one like that at my local market.
This is a great and healthier substitute from the usual salsa bottle that we get at the grocery store.
These are perfect for an afternoon snack!
