Description

Cilantro, jalapeno, lime and green tomatoes are blended to make a bright but creamy new salsa sensation that’s sublime with corn chips and even better poured over sliced avacado, etc.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Green Tomatoes, Quartered
  • 2 whole Jalapeno Peppers, Seeded Or Not, Depending On Your Personal Heat Level
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Smashed
  • ⅔ cups Sweet Onion (Vidalia Or Walla Walla Or OSO)
  • ⅔ cups Water
  • ¼ cups Fresh Cilantro Leaves, Packed
  • ½ cups Canola Oil
  • 1-½ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice

Preparation

Dump tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic, onion and water into a small saucepan. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes.

In a blender, place cilantro, canola oil, salt, sugar and lime juice. Pour hot tomato mixture into blender with other ingredients and blend on high until smooth.

May be served warm or cold. I felt the flavor was better after several hours in the refrigerator, but some liked it best right away. I even used it as the seasoning for my guacamole and didn’t have to add anything else. It’s great for using up all those green tomatoes from your garden.

This salsa is amazing. I wish I had more green tomatoes left so I could make another batch or five!

I substituted the oil for apple cider vinegar and doubled the recipe so that I could can it. I also used an immersion blender to creamy it. Simmered for 30 minutes before canning.

Sweet, spicy and tart. I can’t do really hot, so this is great for me and for gift giving. Thanks!
