Green Tomato Salsa

I love a good salsa verde. So fresh and scrumptious. Over the weekend, I found myself making a batch using some tart green tomatoes I had on hand in lieu of tomatillos. I adapted this recipe for a smaller batch of salsa, and the result was delicious. I may have snacked on it all weekend long as hot sticky thunderstorms passed through. If you happen to find yourself with a few handfuls of green tomatoes, you should give this version of salsa verde a try. It's relatively easy to throw together for a party or just for a snack when you're stuck at home in the rain.


4 cups chopped green tomatoes (about 4 medium green tomatoes)
1 white onion peeled and quartered
2 cloves garlic peeled
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and quartered
1/2 bunch cilantro
1/4 cup lime juice
sea salt to taste

In a food processor, add the onion, garlic, and jalapeno. Pulse until all veggies are finely chopped. Add the veggies from the food processor to a pot with the chopped tomatoes. Add the lime juice and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 10 minutes. While the salsa is simmering, place the cilantro in the food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Remove the salsa from the heat and add in the cilantro and salt to taste.
