Fried Green Tomatoes are a Southern delicacy and really shine in these Fried Green Tomatoes Caprese Stacks. Perfect for easy, elegant entertaining or as a weeknight side dish.
These Fried Green Tomatoes Caprese Stacks are perfect for this time of year.
The green tomatoes are bountiful at the farmers’ market or in the garden and if you are like me, they are just as loved as the red juicy ones I’m beginning to see.
Fried green tomatoes are what I would call a delicacy in the south, good ones at least, and make a revered appetizer or side dish that I just love. You’ll find them everywhere from family supper tables to menus of many of the nicest restaurants south of the Mason-Dixon line.
I have a special love for them and you all know how much I love anything caprese. Remember the grilled caprese chicken? If you haven’t tried it, you really should! It is fabulous!
