We found a way to get the flavor of a fried tomato without all the oil. To make sure the pan is hot enough to yield a crispy crust, preheat it while you're preparing the green tomatoes.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

Delicious sauce for anything from chicken to salmon to rice or just as a dip for brad or veggies-
It disappears faster than you can serve it.
Use 1 large seedless cucumber with the peel if you can or 1 1/2 regular cucumbers peeled if you don't have seedless. Salt and pepper are always to taste, and the olive oil is optional but gives the sauce a bit of richness that is pretty good.
This sauce doesn't usually call for onion, but, I like it.

California Roll in a Bowl
Very Good 4.6/5

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.
