Green Tomato Salsa

My tomatoes seem to have stopped ripening. I have made green tomato mincemeat in the past with the raisins and the sugar and the cinnamon (which is very good but we never seem to eat it), and green tomato pickles, but I wanted to do something different this year, something we would readily eat. I have been following Farmgirl Susan at Farmgirl Fare for awhile now and I saw her recipe for green tomato salsa this week and decided to give it a try. All I can say is....YUM!! The recipe can be found here: Green Tomato Relish. Even though the recipe title says it's a relish, it is salsa all the way with sweet red peppers, onions, garlic, jalapenos and cilantro. It reminds me very much of salsa verde, which is usually made with tomatillos. This will be SOOO good on chicken tacos or enchiladas or even as a dip on some tortilla chips. Jerry and his mom used some last night to dress their cabbage salad. Hope you get a chance to visit Farmgirl Susan, her sheep, donkeys and dogs, and check out this recipe and all the other wonderful recipes she has on her site! :)

It almost makes you glad your tomatoes didn't ripen. Almost...

Susan,
Yeah, I REALLY wanted to can and freeze some ripe tomatoes to use through the winter! Oh well! :)

I've got a bunch of green ones too. If this tastes like salsa, we'll try it!

To bad I did not see this before hubs cleaned out the garden earlier today. Our garden was not great and the tomatoes have started going bad before turning. We got one large batch of salsa and one small batch of pasta sauce. I will have to save this for next years garden.

Kathy,
It does taste like salsa, the peppers, onions, cilantro, etc. give it that salsa taste and don't forget the cumin! :)

Brenda,
Darn! Hope you get a chance to try it next year!

Candy,
This is my husband's favorite salsa, but I had no idea how to make it, until now. THANKS!!! I am going to Farmgirl Fare for Susan's recipe. I can't say thank you enough. I have so many green tomatoes right now and this is a recipe we will use up in a flash.

Heidi,
Green salsa is typically made with tomatillos, I have made that in the past too and I think this recipe tastes pretty much the same! Hope ya'll enjoy! :)
