Description

Wondering what to do with green tomatoes? Make green tomato salsa, of course! They blend into a zesty dip that tastes just like salsa verde.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 ounces green tomatoes (about 5 small)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (without seeds)
  • 3 large cloves garlic
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Instructions

  1. Peel the garlic. Peel and quarter the onion. Remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeño (save the seeds for a hot salsa). If tomatoes are large, quarter them; otherwise leave them whole. (Ours were small so we left them whole.)
  2. Place the green tomatoes, garlic, onion, and jalapeño on a baking sheet. Broil on high for 4 to 5 minutes until just beginning to blacken. Flip and rotate the veggies and broil another 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer everything to a food processor or blender, except use only 1/2 of the jalapeño. Add the cilantro, kosher salt, and lime juice. Pulse until desired consistency is reached. Taste, and if you’d like it hotter add the other 1/2 of the jalapeño and/or some seeds. You may want to refrigerate until serving since the salsa will be warm from the roasting; or leave it at room temperature until serving.
