Green Tomato Salsa

green tomato salsa

I think, in honor of my 39th birthday today, I'll go and pick the green tomatoes and get started on one of my favorite tomato dishes, Fried Green Tomatoes. For the ones left over, I'll make a green tomato salsa. I'd love if they were red and ready to be eaten as is, but that's part of that versatility that I so love about tomatoes.

Hands-On Time: 15 minutes
Ready In: 2 hours and 15 minutes
Yield: about two cups


    3 large green tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced *
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1 cup onion, diced
    1/4 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
    1/2 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    3 T lime juice
    2 teaspoons sugar
    salt to taste


  1. Combine all and season to taste.
  2. Refrigerate for several hours until flavors are well blended.

*Ingredient Tips
The peppers are optional (I leave them out).
