Peculiar Produce Picks


Tomatillos are yellow, red, green, and even purple when ripe, but you’re more likely to find the green variety in the produce section of your local supermarket. These tart fruits look like small tomatoes, but their papery covering or husk sets them apart. As a staple in Mexican cuisine, tomatillos are typically used in raw and cooked green sauces and salsas. You can also incorporate these flavorful tomato lookalikes into salads, stews, and chili to add a tangy kick to your favorite Latin-inspired recipes.
