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.
