More than one way to skin a green tomato

Fresh green tomatoes are hard to get since every one equals one less red juicy tomato.

But when there is a lot of rain perhaps some of the first crop might begin to develop black spots on the bottoms. Picking these off the vine early is the key, and once the bad part is cut away there is normally a good amount of tasty green tomato left.

Or pick some nice green ones, your choice.

Grilled Green Tomatoes

  • 2-3 large green tomatoes cut into thick slices
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 heaping tbsp horseradish
  • Salt/pepper

Mix everything together except green tomatoes. Smear paste onto green tomatoes and let stand 20 minutes. Meanwhile start a fire on the grill. Grill tomatoes, flipping once until cooked through and nicely browned. The time will depend on how hot your grill is. Serve hot.

    You have managed to combine so many of my favorite flavors on a tomato!

  3. Never thought of combining horseradish with tomatoes – greta idea!

  4. Ooh…they sound like they’d have a kick! Yum!

  5. I like the grilling idea! Good to “read” you again!

  6. Now that sounds amazing! Can you believe we cannot find just plain horseradish ground here in HK it is always in some creamy “mystery” horseradish sauce. However I really love this idea and if I head back to the States cannot wait to try. hope you are doing well. Take Care, BAM

  7. I just grilled some green maters this week…don’t you love them grilled? Yummy sauce!

    I’ve never tried grilling green tomatoes but I bet they are great the way you prepared them. BTW, I hope your tomatoes recover from too much rain.
