Ensalada a la Parrilla de Lechuga y Durazno (Gem Lettuce and Peach Grilled Salad)

Today is the first day of summer and to celebrate this day I decided to cook a lovely recipe with ingredients that are in season and peaches and gem lettuce are so lovely at the moment and if grilled, it intensifies their flavour. I know there are many similar recipes like this, but I made it my own by making a tomatillo, also known as Mexican husk tomato, salsa dressing.

I really hope you like this recipe, if you try it, send me a quick message letting me know your thoughts about it!

  • I bought my tomatillos in Borough Market, but if you can’t find any fresh tomatillos, use some green salsa from La Costeña
