Tomatillos, sometimes called husk tomatoes, look like green, unripe tomatoes with a dry, leafy husk that wraps around the outside.
It is commonly eaten either raw in salads (especially to soften the spice of peppers or chili peppers), roasted or as an essential ingredient in green sauce.
The green tomato has a sweet and somewhat acidic flavor at the same time, and it is a basic ingredient in many traditional Mexican recipes. In no way should the common tomato that has not reached the ripening point be confused with the Mexican green tomato. Their small size, their particular shape and, above all, their commercialization with the shell, makes them easily distinguishable.
