Southern Fried Green Tomatoes

July 31, 2011

This classic Southern dish is a great way to bring in the tomato season.  Tart green tomatoes are coated in a cornmeal crust and then fried until golden brown. The tomato softens and almost sweetens during the cooking process.  Fried green tomatoes can be served with tomato sauce, as part of a BLT, or as is.  However you choose to serve it, it is a must-make dish this summer.
