Keto Fried Green Tomatoes

Growing up, fried green tomatoes were a weekend summer tradition in my family. My Sourthern Grandma Sue made the absolute best tomatoes with dipping sauce. To mimic that flavor in a healthier way, I came up with Keto Fried Green Tomatoes that won’t disappoint. These are so flavorful and pairing it with my zesty new sauce takes them over the top.

Tips and Tricks: Keto Fried Green Tomatoes

  • Slice the tomatoes 1/4-1/2 inches thick. I recommend not cutting them super thin because they will get soggy really quick.
  • Use a cast iron skillet to fry and don’t drench the tomato slices in oil. The key is only having about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch of oil in the skillet.
  • Cook them in batches and don’t over crowd them in the skillet.
  • A few minutes on each side will do the trick. Don’t overcook.
  • Make sure not to flip them over and over. I like to only flip them once. This will ensure that all that crispy coating stays in place and doesn’t fall off.
  • Once cooked, place them in a single layer on a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.

Zesty Dipping Sauce

If you have followed me very long, you know I am a sauce gal. I love a good sauce and coming up with new recipes is my JAM! This new Zesty Dipping Sauce is incredible and pairs amazing with the fried tomatoes. It is super simple and requires ingredients you may already have on hand; my homemade mayo, horseradish mustard, crushed red peppers, garlic powder, paprika and salt, pepper and lemon juice.

If you have any extra sauce left, add to a mason jar with a lid and pop in the fridge. It will last up to a week. This sauce will go great with chicken, steak fish and even on top of veggies.
