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.
