Ingredients

3 or 4 large firm green tomatoes

Salt

2 cups vegetable or peanut oil, for deep-frying

1 cup buttermilk

2 cups self-rising flour

Freshly ground black pepper

Vidalia Onion Relish:

2 white onions, diced

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons chopped chives

Directions

  1. Slice the tomatoes 1/4-inch thick. Lay them out in a shallow baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Place the tomato slices in a colander and allow time for salt to pull the water out of the tomatoes, approximately 30 minutes.
  2. In a skillet, heat the oil for deep-frying over medium-high heat.
  3. Dip the tomatoes into buttermilk, then dredge them into flour with a dash of pepper. Deep-fry until golden brown. Keep warm.
  4. For the Vidalia Onion Relish: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for a few hours.
