Green Tomato Salad

It’s Wed. evening and I don’t know where our cold front is, but this morning I rushed out to the garden and picked most of the green tomatoes and all the green beans, so it better get here or else…(I don’t know what)!  Yesterday I picked pounds of green and banana peppers.  And now I guess I need to cook.
