Fried Yellow Tomatoes

We’ve taken a turn in the CSA road, and there is no going back now.  The summer’s hard labor is finally paying off, and our CSA box was brimming with fresh vegetables.  Seriously, I could feed a vegetarian army.

When we start to see things other than leafy greens, I get a little excited.  Don’t get me wrong, the greens are great, but local corn and peppers? You stop it. I am so in love.

Today we have a dish that is created almost solely from our CSA, with the addition of avocado and lime juice.  It’s a clean and fresh first dish or side that will remind you of why you joined a CSA in the first place.

Speaking of, you do know that our CSA season isn’t even halfway over? That’s right, the goodness continues. If you’re in the Colorado/Wyoming area, you can join Grant Family Farms CSA with a 5% discount by entering the code #FarmFreshAB at check out.  It’s prorated, so you only pay for the produce you get, AND you are supporting our local community.

Fried Yellow Tomatoes with a Grilled Corn and Pepper Salsa



Remove the crust from the loaf of bread, process into fine crumbs and toast in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes or until crisp but not burned.  Remove and set aside.  Grill the corn and pepper until slightly charred. Slice the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.  Coat in the fresh bread crumbs and sear in a hot skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil until golden. Repeat on the other side.  Remove the corn from the ear, dice the pepper, avocado, green onion, parsley and cilantro.  Mix together and dress with the lime juice, and season with salt and pepper. Stack the seared tomatoes and salsa, and serve.
