The main ingredient in salsa verde, tomatillos are like tangy cherry tomatoes but more fibrous. The addition of sweet yellow corn balances out the tartness of the tomatillos and lime juice. Serve this mild salsa with tortilla chips or use as a chunky topping for enchiladas.
Puree tomatillos in food processor. Remove and place in a serving bowl. Add the corn, onions and jalapeño.
Stir in the lime juice, pepper, cilantro and cumin. Salt to taste.
