I am blessed to have access to green tomatoes all through the Summer season and well into Autumn. Our local green grocers stock them, as well as the Asian shop, and some we take from our own bushes. Our love of green tomatoes is well known.
There is a time in Summer when our adoration of tomato salads kicks in – normally in Feb, late Summer, when tomatoes begin to reach their peak. Then tomato salads feature at most meals, right through to Mid Autumn. This year it was a little earlier, in the last weeks of January. There was heatwave after heatwave this year, and so I blame the weather 😉 .
This salad can be made with any fresh mozzarella, creamy cows milk feta or ricotta. The tomatoes are crisp, firm and sharp, and contrast well with the cheeses. The dressing is made with balsamic vinegar and mustard with olive oil. Normally we wouldn’t include such sharp tastes with such subtle cheeses, but it works well with the green tomatoes.

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.

I look forward to having green tomatoes from the garden – I love the tartness in salads, salsa, and topping other dishes (adding a real zing to them). Just occasionally my green grocer stocks them too.
This is a salad which is good with fresh mozzarella, either balls (big or small), plaits or long strings. We like to rip them open, roughly, spreading them over the plate, and topping with our other ingredients. Oh yum!
This recipes layers fresh mozzarella with green tomatoes and basil or other herbs. I know that you will enjoy it.

Zucchini takes extremely well to marination, particularly with Mediterranean flavours such as garlic, olive oil, oregano. Mix them up and leave for 30 mins – 1 hour, then serve. You can mix them with Bocconcini, for example, or, like this recipe, with some beautiful tomatoes. Fresh, young zucchini has the most glorious texture.
I have used small cherry tomatoes here, but use any tomatoes you have – halving or slicing them depending on the size. I like to mix green, semi ripe and ripe tomatoes as it gives variation in flavours, but this is probably only possible if you or your best friend grow your own tomatoes. Green tomatoes are difficult to find these days, yet I love them.
Throw in a small zucchini flower or two if you have them.

Since the garden has includes some tomato bushes I have been playing around with green tomatoes, and adore them a lot. In the simplest form, they go amazingly well in salads, and mixed in with ripe tomatoes to top your pasta dinner. This recipe is a Salsa and it plays to the green tomato’s flavour and texture. I hope you enjoy it.
