Spicy Green Tomato Salsa
Salsa is one of my favourite condiments that I put on just about any dish. I normally make a fresh tomato salsa, but if you have an extra hour, this cooked version is definitely worth the effort, the flavours are much richer. If you have a garden at home with a crop of stubborn green tomatoes that just won’t ripen, this is a great recipe to try so they don’t go to waste. Alternatively a lot of vegetable markets at this time of year sell green tomatoes and if you aren’t able to find them you can always use red tomatoes which are still firm.

Spicy Green Tomato Salsa
This green tomato salsa is completely fool proof and you can play around with the measurements of spices and seasonings to suit your taste. I love cumin so always add extra, but you can increase the amount of lime juice, cilantro or jalapenos as well.

Spicy Green Tomato Salsa
The Green Tomato Salsa goes with absolutely anything. I love having it with scrambled eggs, on chicken or fish or on top of Mexican salads. It will last in the fridge for about a week, or alternatively to enjoy this salsa all year round you can can it in sterilized jars.
