These are heavenly and perfect for summertime. By grilling the tomatoes first, it cooks them a bit before frying. This means they don't have to fry as long to achieve a perfect golden brown. Not oily, these fried green tomatoes have a wonderful crunch. The fresh salsa on top is the perfect accompaniment.
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe: A Novel by Fannie Flagg - The remarkable novel of two Southern friendships--the basis of the hit film(One of my all-time favorites). One of my favorite books as well, can't wait to read it again!
