Green Tomato Recipes

Need some Green Tomato Recipes to use up the inevitable bounty of green fruit in your end-of-summer vegetable garden?

Shrimp and Grits is my favorite way to use up green tomatoes, but since I always seem to have an abundance of green fruit at the end of the summer I wanted to find some other green tomato recipes so that they don’t go to waste. From Green Tomato Salsa Verde to the ubiquitous Fried Green Tomatoes, there is surely a recipe that will pique your interest.

These recipes will accommodate any size of green tomato, from green cherry tomatoes to the larger variety. The key is that you need underripe tomatoes instead of ripe green tomatoes such as Green Zebra Tomatoes, German Green Tomatoes or Green Giant Tomatoes.

Where can you find Green Tomatoes?

My go-to source for green tomatoes has always been my late summer garden. If you don’t have a garden, I have found them occasionally in my grocery store, but I think you’ll have better luck asking your neighbor or going to your local Farmer’s Market.

Perfect recipe for any night or a special night...Shrimp and Grits.
