- 2 pounds tomatoes, coarsely chopped
- 6 tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and chopped
- 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2/3-inch dice
- 1/2 English (seedless) cucumber, cut into 1/2-inch dice

To make dressing, whisk together lime zest and juice, garlic, oil, salt, and black pepper in large bowl.
Add all remaining ingredients except chicken and cilantro to dressing; toss until mixed well. Divide vegetable mixture evenly among 6 plates or large shallow bowls. Top each serving with 1/2 cup chicken; sprinkle with cilantro.
The easiest way to husk a tomatillo is to hold it under cool running water while peeling off the husk. Be sure to rub the outside of the tomatillo until any residual stickiness is washed away.
