A good use for Green Tomatoes on your tomato plants is to make Green Tomato Salsa. I had about 30 green tomatoes.
I really didn’t want to lose and decided to make some green tomato salsa.
This is not out of any of the recipe books we are using as none of the recipes were quite what I wanted. I did not want to can it in case we didn’t like it. Just a recipe for some fresh salsa was what I needed.
I used several recipes to come up with the recipe I ended up using. It is very good, not too hot and just what I was looking for. If you have some green tomatoes you might want to try this recipe.
Green Tomato Salsa
5 medium green plum tomatoes
1 medium slightly red plum tomato
1 medium jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped (more if you like it hotter)
¼ cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and leave at room temperature for at least 2 hours to blend flavors before serving. Store any leftovers in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator.
