So I love summer for many reasons! I will not name them all as we would be here all day… But one of the reasons I love summer is for The Farmer’s Markets! It’s the only time I can get green tomatoes too, to make fried green tomatoes…And I LOVE fried green tomatoes!

and I want to watch this movie now:

Great Movie!

So let’s start with the sauce I found to go with these fried green tomatoes…Guthrie’s Sauce

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup ketchup

Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours for the flavors to meld together. This sauce is not just great with fried green tomatoes, but also chicken fingers, seafood, and even as a salad dressing.

Now on to the tomatoes! Recipe

3 medium, firm green tomatoes
Salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1 egg
1/3 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs

Set the cooked tomatoes on paper towels to drain.
