Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Jicama is related to the sharp-tasting turnip, but it is very mild in flavor and packs an inviting crunch in the fresh salsa. Peel the brown outer skin, and then chop the white flesh. Tomatillos are green vegetables that look like cherry tomatoes. They come in husks, so remove the husks and rinse off any sticky residue before chopping.
  • Tip 2
    For a tomatillo substitute, buy underripe tomatoes and add a squeeze of lime juice.
