We all know what you are supposed to do with green tomatoes, and where, but truth be told a plate of fried green tomatoes truly is simply delicious.
And if you want to know something else, there really is no need to mess with perfection. If you want to find something else to do with your green tomatoes other than fry them—although there is really no explanation as to why you would—you could grill them, and of course they would be delicious. To wander down this path you'll want to marinate them in some olive oil, garlic, and white balsamic vinegar before getting them over the fire. If you prefer something to make your lips pucker, perhaps you'd prefer to pickle them.
Try a batch of Green Tomato Pickles and they may well be your new kitchen favorite. Move over, fried. However you enjoy these green treats, they are incredible additions to any plate. The challenge isn't so much what to do with them, but how you can manage to live without them. Have some Green Tomato Chile Verde, or some Fried Green Tomato Po'boys, and you'll know this is the forgotten favorite of the tomato family.
