- Tips & Techniques
This dressing is best when avocadoes are ripe and abundant, which they often are when tomatillos are in season in the summer and fall. Tomatillos are an underutilized vegetable and have a wonderfully tart taste and a crunchy texture. While this dressing works well on green salad, it also adds another dimension to any lean protein such as chicken or tofu, or turns leftover grains or beans into a delicious salad.
