Light Summer Salad

Green unripe tomatoes are semi sweet with distinctive taste. They are neither sweet nor sour. You also get a bit of firm crunch in every bite.

We pair them with red onions for a slightly pungent taste. One or two garden peppers for bits of spices. You can always adjust the amount of peppers to control the heat.

Drizzle some olive oil, add salt and sugar. With every bite, it creates flavor explosion. It’s tangy, savory and delicious. The crushed peanuts add extra rustic dimension to the mix.

Summer Garden Recipe

Backyard gardening is our favorite family activity during the summer months. It’s such a rewarding and fulfilling experience to grow your food in the garden. Kids love getting involved which makes it so much more fun too.

We plant variety of tomato plants. There often is mix of roma, beefsteak, heirloom and grape and cherry tomato plants in my garden.

Green Tomato Salad

This salad is our family favorite summer meal, especially on those nights it’s too hot to cook. It’s so refreshing and light since you use garden fresh tomatoes and herbs.

If you have a ton of tomatoes growing in your garden, or see some at the farmer’s market, make this salad. You will fall in love with it.

Starting late spring and throughout the summer these unripe tomatoes are abundant. And red tomatoes work just as well if you can’t find green ones.

SERVING IDEAS

We like to serve this beautiful salad as side dish with grilling recipes like Miso Glazed Grilled Veggies.

I also sometimes make an easy mezze platter  for yummy easy and quick spread worthy of  Al fresco summer patio dining

This salad pairs really well with loaf of crusty bread. Similar to red tomato salad, let the bread sop up all those delicious juices at the bottom. That juice is so good, I often end up eating it till last drop.

Since the ingredients are so simple, the flavor really relies on the best green tomatoes and a good quality extra virgin olive oil. This salad tastes best when served at room temperature or even chilled.
