Chunky green tomato salsa

chunky green tomato salsaChunky green tomato salsa: Salsa, America’s favourite sauce! This being said we thought we would have a go at making some salsa at The Farm at Rockledge Garden’s on Saurday, without the aid of a food processor. Just a chopping board, sharp knife and of course a wonderful selection of the necessary organically grown veggies from The Farm.

We were a bit short on hot pepper at The Farm, so had to improvise with a chili and lime spice rub we found in our ‘secret store of ingredients you might like to add’.

We did build this chunky green tomato salsa on the run, as it were, but we got some great feedback and so are passing our recipe on to you. You can grab your copy from our ever-growing recipe box at The Farm.


  • 12 medium freshly picked green tomatoes, room temperature and diced
  • 4 – 5 medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch (about 10) spring onions, finely chopped and including the good green leaves
  • 3 tablespoons freshly picked cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (we used the key lime juice you can find at the supermarkets)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon chili and lime spice blend
  • 2 tablespoons Vi’s sweet habanero jelly

My name is Susie Evans-Ardovini and I created The Big Dream Factory. I was born in the UK and have been a chef and restauranteur for over 30 years. During this time I have also lived in France and Italy where I visited many beautiful places and met many wonderful people. I am particularly impressed with the Italian way of life and their approach to food. Many families work extremely hard to grow and produce their own salumi, cheese, wine and olive oil which means that they have a wealth of knowledge and experience, most of which has been handed down through countless generations. It is no different in the kitchen. Nearly all foods served at an Italian table have been gathered from someones garden or field, and is then served alongside homemade, pasta, gnocchi, and countless dishes that could not be recounted in this tiny space since each family's knowledge is unique ... well, you can only imagine. I have walked Rome, climbed to the top of the Vatican, seen Milan, Venice, the Cinque Terre, climbed mountains, walked The Path of the Gods, wandered the great city of Napoli, lived on the little Island of Ponza and gathered a pile of friends, family and photographs as well as invalueable experience along the way. I became a new immigrant to the U.S.A on December 15th, 2013. With the support of many great friends and a passion (bordering on obsession), I am here in search of the American Dream and to bring you the natural flavours and vibrant colours of Italy. All my pasta, gnocchi and biscotti are made by hand just as I saw Italians do in homes and good restaurants all over Italy, every day and sometimes, twice a day. I hope you enjoy my creations and invite you to share your comments, photographs and recipes with me on Facebook or Twitter. In return I of course, will share beautiful Italy with you.
