Every time a thunderstorm rolls through I like to check the garden after and collect any fruit or vegetables that may have been knocked lose or damaged. I find a lot of green tomatoes this way, but don’t let them ever go to waste. Make sure to cut away any bruises.
Squash Tossed with Green Tomatoes and Red Bell Pepper
- 2 large green tomatoes diced medium
- 1 red bell pepper chopped small
- 2 yellow squash cut into 1/4″ slices
- 1 cup thinly sliced onion
- 4 leaves basil sliced into ribbons
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1 tbsp olive oil
In a large frying pan heat over medium heat and saute onion until translucent. Add red bell pepper and tomatoes and cook until they soften. Add wine and basil and turn heat to high. Add squash and saute until tender. Squash should still be firm but cooked through. Do not overcook it to mush. Season with salt and pepper.
