It’s hard to make green food look appetizing in reproduction, otherwise you would see a gleaming pool of tomatillo salsa illustrated here.  It is the tomatillo salsa from Coldwater (formerly Hawgs) on Mission Street.

My favorite appetizer with a cocktail at this handy pit-stop is the shrimp quesadilla. Terrifically hand-friendly, delicious and enough for two people to share. But the secret weapon of this dish has got to be the better than good tomatillo salsa, loaded with the citrusy mystery of this cousin to the tomato, a peppery kick and plenty of garlic.

According to our very helpful wait person, the house tomatillo is from a family recipe of one of the cooks. Thank you to that cook and his/her family. Tomatillo salsa worthing getting out of bed for.
