GREEN TOMATO ANTIPASTO

Here's what I did with the small green tomatoes I found the other day:  First I sliced them thinly, then put them in a bowl with some cut-up sundried tomatoes [not the ones in oil] chopped mint, sprigs of thyme, crushed garlic, seasalt, black pepper and a little sugar.  I chucked some balsamic vinegar over the lot and left them in the fridge.  I drizzled some olive oil over before serving.

I can imagine eating them as they are or on some fresh, fire-toasted bread :-)

May I drop by and help you eat this? (Don't worry, I won't make it back to Italy until next year).

I'm dreaming of good, homegrown tomatoes.

Thanks, Laura. Certainly, Miss Footloose! Nice to meet you. Hi, Gary. On fire-toasted bread sounds a good idea. Thanks, Carmen. They turned out much better than I expected! Thank you, WW. Thanks, jams. I hope not!

Fried Green Tomatoes are wildly popular here in the South (USA, that is). But I love this recipe and will try it for sure.
