Green Tomato Salsa Recipe

Green Tomato Salsa

Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 2 hours

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.
