Magic sungold and tomatillo salsa

It's peak tomato season here, and in celebration, here's my recipe for delicious salsa:

Step 1:
1 pint tomatillos, husk removed and washed with warm water to get rid of the stickiness, cut in half
4-5 cloves garlic
1 jalepeno, halved and seeds removed
1 sweet red pepper
Roast the above ingredients at 350 for an hour.  Yum, roasted garlic!

Step 2:
1 red onion, chopped
1 more sweet red pepper
juice of a lime
Add these ingredients to the roasted ingredients above, and chop up finely in a food processor.

Step 3:
1 pint sungold tomatoes (oh so sweet and good), quartered
1 large Brandywine tomato, chopped small
generous dash of salt
Mix everything together, and EAT.  Probably with a spoon, it's good.

Variation: last time I made it, I added some fresh sweet corn.  Cilantro would be good too.
