Fried Green Tomatoes:

3 or 4 large, firm green tomatoes


Cracked black pepper

1 cup self-rising flour, or cornmeal

Peanut oil, for frying

Avocado Salad:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 tablespoons adobo sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 cups spring mix lettuce, washed

1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced


  1. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F.
  2. For the tomatoes: Slice the tomatoes to desired thickness. Lay the tomato slices out on a pan lined with a paper towel and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Allow time for the salt to pull the water out of the tomatoes.
  3. Mix together the flour and a pinch of salt and pepper. Coat the tomatoes with the flour mixture and deep-fry until golden brown.
  4. For the salad: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lime juice, adobo sauce, and salt.
  5. Place the spring mix on a plate. Alternate tomatoes and avocado slices in a circle on top of spring mix. Drizzle with dressing. Serve immediately.
