Tomatillos’ unique, tart flavor combines well with avocados, cilantro, and lime juice in this variation of the well-loved Mexican dip. Serve with chips or, for better nutrition, jicama sticks, which increase the vitamin C and banish bad fats in one move. Jicama also has a very satisfying, juicy crunch.
