Place tomatillos, garlic, yellow onion and salt into a sauce pan. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium and cook until tomatillos, onion and garlic soften. Add roasted chiles and remove from heat. Cool mix overnight. Strain off liquid and place solids into a blender. Add cilantro and lime juice. Process adding just enough of the reserved liquid to create a thick salsa. Adjust seasoning with salt, if needed.
