Living here in the South, fried green tomatoes are the gold standard for chefs, but there are so many other ways to use them. I’m a big fan and have developed lots of recipes where I substituted green tomatoes from my favorite red tomato recipes! I love this green tomato article, it even gave me new ideas.

Many of you have asked for my Green Salsa Recipe (see below). It’s so fresh and vibrant! It also makes a great topping for a Cali Mex Burger.

• 2 green tomatoes quartered
• 1 half small onion quartered
• 1 jalapéno seeded and quartered
• 1 garlic clove
• 2 Haas avocados
• ½ cup cilantro tops
• 1-2 limes juiced
• salt to taste

Place cilantro, onion, jalapéno, salt and garlic in food processor and pulse until combined. Add green tomatoes, avocados and lime juice and pulse until chunky unless you like a smoother salsa then puree. Feel free to add more of any of the ingredients to your taste.
