Tabbouleh with Pickled Green Tomatoes

Tabouli with Pickled Green Tomatoes

I have a new obsession and it’s not pumpkin spice lattes. Why the sudden rush to jump into fall? Cooler weather would be nice but I think it’s a bit too soon for halloween candy. Speaking of halloween candy, these pickled tomatoes are such a bright, spooky green color and so addictingly delicious.  They’re tangy and subtly sweetened with honey – I’ve determined they’re good on everything, perhaps even dipped in chocolate (ok, kidding… kinda). In this tabbouleh salad the tomatoes provide a bite of unexpected brightness – kinda like that first cool day after 4 long months of summer, so fresh and exciting.

    I love tabbouleh salad and these pickled tomatoes take it to a whole other level. Lovely dish, Grace. Pickled vegetables are one of my favorites but I’ve never made pickled green tomatoes before. Must do this next time I come across green tomatoes!
