Tomato lovers, it doesn’t get much better than this. In this easy summer time recipe from Sara Moulton Cooks at Home you start with a base of breaded and fried green tomato slices, top it off with a little salad of cherry tomatoes, and spoon on some homemade ranch dressing. Done. Just make sure all the tomatoes are fresh and in season.
For the salad:
12 to 15 yellow cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint leaves
3 fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Additional kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
For the dressing:
For the tomatoes:
Serves 6 to 8

Sara, I love your recipes, but I’m a bit confused by the directions for the Fried Green Tomatoes. I see no cheese in the ingredients list and in the third paragraph of the directions it says to “spoon on the cheese mixture”… I’m guessing this was inadvertently inserted here from a different recipe. Would you please clarify? Thank you.
BTW, it was the salad and dressing that caught my interest, sounds good over the tomatoes. Yum! Can’t wait for fresh tomatoes from the garden.

Good catch Sue. Sometimes when setting up a whole new website, things get mixed around and put in the wrong place. Thanks so much.

I am so glad that I finally found your TV show on Cooking Channel! I love the cooking techniques, handy hints and general knowledge that your show delivers. I don’t aspire to be a chef but I would like to be a very good home cook. The rural area I live in does not offer a lot of classes and I don’t want to go to culinary school for the basics — your show definitely is a step in the right direction.
