This is a meal we love here at Back Roads Living right out of our garden! Fresh Fried Green Tomatoes and Summer Squash. We love them fixed like this! You can use the same skillet it is all the same batter.
These two garden vegetables mixed in a skillet and fried are mouth watering good and I am sure you are going to love them just as much as we did!
The fried green tomatoes by themselves make a delicious dish with a little dip on the side!
½ cup mayonnaise. We prefer Hellmann’s
½ cup sour cream. Use your favorite brand.
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. We use the local store brand and it works fine.
2 large cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 bunch green onion (scallions) – use all but 2” of the green
Put all the ingredients in your Cuisinart Food Processor and blend until smooth.
Did you know you could freeze your excess green tomatoes? Don’t throw away those extra tomaote’s at the seasons end.
Be sure to go through and pick the best and firmest tomatoes and prepare them to freeze so you can continue to have green fried tomatoes for awhile after the growing season is over.
It is safe to freeze them for 10 months to a year and still have good flavor!
When you want a batch of green fried tomatoes just remove as many as you need and drop in your pre-heated oil.
Enjoy your Fried Summer Squash and Green Tomatoes. Leave us a comment on how you fix yours! 🙂
