When all those green tomatoes make you feel guilty, turn to Green Tomato Salsa! This recipe can be made with 100% green tomatoes or a mix of green tomatoes and tomatillos.

4 to 5 large green tomatoes (may mix with tomatillos)
1 red pepper, roasted and seeded
2 jalapeno chilies, roasted and seeded
2 small onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 cup fresh cilantro or parsley leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process just until coarsely chopped. Season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate for at least 3 hours to allow flavors to blend and develop. If possible, remove from fridge about 20 minutes before serving — this salsa is at its flavorful best when not too cold. Serve with chips and sour cream on the side, if desired.
