Fried Green Tomatoes with Buttermilk Dressing


I get so excited when the green tomatoes start showing up on the vines. Most of our very first green tomatoes every year will be turned into Fried Green Tomatoes, it is a treat that we look forward to and just love. My recipe is a family recipe that was handed to me by my Grandmother and it has been changed very little since that time.  Lets get these green tomatoes in the frying pan.

In a medium bowl, mix together the egg and buttermilk.
In a separate bowl, stir together, the flour, cornmeal, and salt.
