Fried Green Tomato Salad with Yogurt Dressing
Recipe Type: Side
Fried green tomatoes are nestled atop a spinach and red tomato salad and drizzled with a tangy yogurt sauce to contrast the rich fried topping.
  • 3 green tomatoes
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (or normal)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 red tomato
  • 1 cup spinach
  • alfalfa sprouts
  • handful of parsley to garnish
  • lemon wedges to serve
  • oil for frying
Yogurt Dressing
  • ½ cup natural greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  1. Combine the greek yoghurt, lemon juice and cumin and a teaspoon of water and stir until combined. Set aside in fridge.
  2. Dust the green tomatoes in flour, dip into the eggwash and coat in the panko crumbs.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, add the crumbed tomatoes and cook for a minute each side or until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Once all the tomatoes have cooked, arrange them on the spinach, sprouts and sliced red tomato.
  5. Drizzle with the yoghurt sauce, garnish with chopped parsley and serve with a wedge of lemon.
I also sprinkled the salad with some smoked paprika however it's not necessary.
