Zucchini Salsa Verde

A nice take on salsa verde. Zucchini is so versatile!

Zucchini Salsa Verde
1 sweet onion, cut in wedges
2 poblano peppers, chunked
1 lb zucchini, cut in 1 inch pieces
4 tomatillos, husked removed and halved
1/4 c. diced tamed jalapenos
1 TB lime juice
1 TB hot sauce
1 tsp grated lime peel
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp honey

Grill onion, poblano peppers, zucchini and tomatillos (could also use fresh jalapenos and grill those too). Grill 18-22 minutes or until lightly charred. Finely chop or use a food processor to lightly chop. Transfer to a medium bowl and add remaining ingredients.
