Grilled Tomatillo Salsa inspired by Rachel Ray
1/2 lb. tomatillos, husked and halved crosswise
1 small red onion, thickly sliced
1 fresh jalapeno, halved and seeded
1/2 tomato, preferably yellow, chopped
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
In a medium bowl, toss the tomatillos, onion and jalapeno halves with the vegetable oil and garlic. Season with salt. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat grill to high.
Remove vegetables from oil and grill until lightly charred. The tomatillos will cook much more quickly than the onion and jalapeno. Remove from the grill.
Chop all the vegetables and mix in a bowl with tomato, cilantro, lime juice, vinegar and sugar.
