Green Tomato Salad

Green Tomato Salad

We are always looking for good recipes to use the green tomatoes we harvest at the end of the season.  This salad received a thumbs up!

3 large green tomatoes, cored, quartered and thinly sliced

2 tsp salt

1 cucumber, thinly sliced

1/2 medium size onion, thinly sliced

Juice from 1 lime, 2 tsp bottled lime juice OR 3 tsp apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 small clove garlic, finely chopped

Flat Leaf Parsley, chopped, approximately 1/4 cup

Fresh Dill, chopped, approximately 2 T ( or sub fresh Mint or Cilantro)

Freshly ground pepper

Place sliced tomatoes in colander over a bowl or in your sink.  Sprinkle with salt, toss gently and allow to drain for 20-30 minutes.

In a shallow bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumber slices, onion, lime or vinegar, olive oil and chopped garlic.   Toss gently.  Add fresh herbs and toss to combine.   Taste for seasoning.  Add freshly ground pepper.  Serve at room temperature.

Tip: If you are concerned about the salad being too salty, you may want to rinse, at least partially, the tomatoes before combining with other ingredients.  You can always add more salt if you find the rinsing took too much away.
