Mexican Green Tomato Salsa

  • 1.5-2 pounds green tomatoes, cored and diced
  • 1 white or yellow onion, diced
  • 3 jalapeno or Serrano peppers, diced (adjust quantity to taste)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ⅓ cup cilantro, chopped

This is a relatively easy salsa to make except for one little thing: you will need to core the tomatoes (the centers of green tomatoes are often just a little too firm to work in a green tomato salsa recipe). You can use an apple corer or do it yourself with a sharp paring knife instead, whichever works best for you. Dice the tomatoes, onions, and peppers and chop the cilantro and garlic before adding all of the ingredients to a food processor. Pulse several times until the salsa is just slightly chunky, refrigerate for a few hours, and serve.
