Green Tomato Relish

Green tomatoes are very plentiful in summer gardens.  If you have an abundance, this is a fun alternative to Fried Green Tomatoes.  This relish can be served with burgers, dogs, or mixed in with cous cous or rice for a refreshing summer side dish.  There is a sharpness from the vinegar and a mild heat from the jalapeno.  You only cook the relish for a few minutes, so the vegetables retain much of their freshness and crunch.  If you are headed to a BBQ this summer and need something different to bring along, consider making up a batch of this green tomato relish.

Green Tomato Relish
2 large green tomatoes
1 medium onion
1 jalapeno pepper
