Our new family favorite hot weather dinner. That’s a shot of Fried Green Tomato Salad with homemade buttermilk ranch dressing. Our other variation is fried chicken. We call it fried salad for short. It’s really good either way, especially if you fry your green tomatoes in bacon fat.
Both are served on a bed of greens, with homemade croutons, buttermilk ranch dressing, cheese (Pat & I prefer pepper jack, but Edie likes it with a bit more cheddar), hard boiled egg, tomatoes and corn freshly shaved off the cob. Chopped bacon bits optional.
