Is this a salad, salsa or relish? I am not sure, but this dish has to be made as it is delicious. There is something about green tomatoes that is addictive.
I am lucky that my green grocer has green tomatoes, and also we have some (not many this year) from our vegetable garden. Failing this, talk to your green grocer and see whether he can get some in for you.
The crunch of the tomatoes with the sweetness of the pineapple and the freshness of the herbs is so Summery! Think hot days, and picnics in the park. Perfect. It is also wonderful as an accompaniment in sandwiches and wraps.
