A fried green tomato salad featuring fried green tomatoes, goat cheese, corn, and a zingy roasted red pepper dressing.
In a small mixing bowl, combine buttermilk and hot sauce. Add tomato sliced and allow to soak for 15-20 minutes.
Add oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. In a pie dish or a breading tray, mix together flour, cornmeal, salt, smoked paprika and pepper. Once the oil is heated, remove the tomatoes from the buttermilk mixture, one at a time, shaking off excess liquid, then dredge each slice liberally in the flour mixture.
Fry for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on each side. Do not overcrowd the pan. Toss together the ingredients for the salad, top with fried green tomatoes and serve with Zingy Roasted Red Pepper Dressing.
For best results, serve this salad while the fried green tomatoes are still hot, fresh out of the oil!
