  • 3 or 4 large firm green tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable oil, or peanut oil, for deep-frying
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 white onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • salt


Slice the tomatoes 1/4-inch thick. Lay them out in a shallow baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Place the tomato slices in a colander and allow time for salt to pull the water out of the tomatoes, approximately 30 minutes.


In a skillet, heat the oil for deep-frying over medium-high heat.


Dip the tomatoes into buttermilk, then dredge them into flour with a dash of pepper. Deep-fry until golden brown. Keep warm.


For the Vidalia Onion Relish:


Mix onions, mayonnaise, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar and chives together in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for a few hours.
