After spending a ton of time traveling in the southern states, I became a HUGE fan of fried green tomatoes. I've had everything from fried green tomato BLT salads to fried green tomato eggs benedict. I've been on such a pasta salad kick lately and really wanted to come up with a way to make the flavors work with pasta and boooom. (I also love a good caprese salad so I added in some elements of that as well - basil, fresh mozz, balsamic!)
The tomatoes aren't actually fried (so much less work - and healthier!) but the addition of homemade crispy breadcrumbs mixed into every bite makes it feel like they are fried and creates that crispy texture! You can buy breadcrumbs, but I highly suggest making your own! Throw a few slices of your fave bread into a processor and toast them in olive oil on the stovetop until golden brown and crispy! Worth every second.
