Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.

Ingredients

3
thick sliced green tomatoes
2
eggs used as a wash
1 c
cornmeal or Panko bread crumbs
1 c
fresh homemade salsa
sour cream
