Tomatillo Salsa

I love these sweet tomato shaped fruits with a parchment paper like cover.  The larger ones look like tomatoes.  The smaller versions-called ground cherries-look like yellow cherry tomatoes.  But the taste is much different.  Crisp and sweet, tomatillos have a longer shelf life than tomatoes.  This salsa recipe from Epicurious is simply delicious.  I substituted green sweet pepper for the jalepeno.  This salsa is so good-it even works as a garnish on a deli sandwich.
