This is the first year we’ve grown tomatillos on the farm. And, if we are completely honest, prior to this summer, I had never purchased or used a tomatillo in any recipe…never. However, we do believe in using what we grow. (Except for eggplant. I still don’t have a love for eggplant…and don’t know that I ever will.) We loved this yummy tomatillo cilantro ranch dressing. It goes perfectly on a copycat Cafe Rio Salad! We also discovered it makes an awfully good dip for veggies! It’s super fast and easy to make.
