Fried Tomatoes with Spicy Sriracha Sauce


Hi Friends!

Popping in to share an easy and delicious recipe today...the fried tomato!  With summer in full swing...the produce, particularly the tomatoes, have been readily available and perfect to eat.  I love a great caprese salad in the summer, but sometimes something warm and crunchy hits the mark.  I love this version {found on AllRecipes.com} because it uses cornmeal for an extra hearty crunch.  We also used panko style bread crumbs for a nice texture.  The end result was a warm tomato on the inside with a crispy outer shell.  Delicious!  And just to kick it up a notch, we made this tasty sriracha sauce to accompany the tomatoes.

2 T. mayonnaise
2 T. ketchup
chili powder
cayenne pepper
Sriracha hot chili sauce (Asian hot sauce)

Mix all the ingredients together and voila!  It adds just the right amount of heat to make this a great starter or summer meal.

What have you been enjoying this summer?
