Allisha's notes for this recipe:
I had seen this on a restaurant's menu, and I put it in my "arsenal" for the right time. I was able to purchase 10 lbs green tomatoes this summer, so I knew fried green tomatoes were in our future! The roasted red pepper mayo makes it. I can still taste how good they turned out!

Fried green tomatoes are one of my all-time favorite summertime indulgences! This sandwich really shows off the tomatoes' flavor by using light panko breadcrumbs as coating. The roasted red pepper mayo is the perfect finishing touch.


Slice green tomatoes. Put in a colander and set in the sink. Sprinkle salt over them and let the excess liquid be drawn out. This should take about 30 minutes. Pour the buttermilk in one bowl. In another bowl, mix together the panko bread crumbs, flour, salt to taste, and red pepper. Heat approximately 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a skillet. Place the tomatoes in the buttermilk, then dredge through the panko mixture. Pan-fry until crispy. Drain on a cooling rack (so they won't get soggy).
Meanwhile, mix together roasted red pepper vinaigrette and mayo. Toast bread slices. Assemble sandwich with red pepper mayo, lettuce, bacon (2 slices per sandwich) and tomatoes.

I love fried green tomatoes. I saved so I can make this. How I miss the south! I live in Cali went to Ky on vacation. I lived in Arkansas when I was a little girl. Great post! Thanks.
