This tasted great, however, both times when I ate it I got severe stomach cramps within about 3 hours. I discovered on the internet that green tomatos eaten raw can be toxic and have that effect on some people. So, I now use the same recipe, only I bring the sauce to a boil first before using it.

Exactly the recipe I was searching! Simple, Basic, Reliable - regardless of personal variations. Combo of ingred's satisfy desire for FRESH. Loved it! Tip: scoop out seeds from cucumbers. I simplified the directions which call for food processor - no need. Fine chunks (knife skills) are great
