Oven Fried Green Tomato Salad w/ Mozzarella

 

Hands down, no one makes a better fried green tomato than my mother Gayle Jones.  However, when they are made, the word ‘healthy’ doesn’t necessarily resound within the production of these deliciously battered green discs.  For this reason, ACAOF has added a twist the comfort food we know as the fried green tomato and incorporated a little more ‘green’ around the edges.  Enjoy!

ACAOF’s Oven-Fried Green Tomato Salad w/ Fresh Mozzarella

 

Get this:

 – 2 green tomatoes (grew my own!!)

– 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

– 1/3 cup corn meal

– 1/2 tbsp AbstractSpice

– 1/2 cup milk

– 1/2 cup panko or regular bread crumbs

– Romaine/ red leaf lettuce- cleaned and chopped

– Fresh mozzarella cheese

– Your favorite Italian dressing or vinaigrette

– Kosher/sea salt

– Cooking spray

– Cooking sprayed cookie sheet or flat pan

Do this:

– Pre-heat oven to 400

– Slice tomatoes approximately 1/4 of an inch thick- set aside

– Mix flour, cornmeal, AbstractSpice, and milk thoroughly to pancake batter consistency

– Coat each tomato slice in batter

– On a greased cookie sheet or flat pan, place each coated tomato immediately sprinkling each slice with bread crumbs making sure the tomatoes do not touch

– Before placing in oven, spray pan of tomatoes with cooking spray

– Bake on 400 for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown

– While tomatoes are baking, plate the cleaned and chopped romaine lettuce

– Roughly cut fresh cheese to desired size pieces and arrange sparingly on romaine lettuce

– Add desired dressing to lettuce

– Once tomatoes are done, let cool for 3-5 minutes

– Place desired amount of tomatoes atop the salad and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher/sea salt

Enjoy!
