Fried Green Tomatillos with Pimento Cheese Dip

Dip these crunchy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside bites of tangy tomatillo into the nostalgic dip of the past: pimento cheese!


1/2 C canola oil

12 tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed, and sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

2 eggs, beaten

2 C breadcrumbs

1 C pimento cheese spread

Micro greens to garnish


Heat oil in a large skillet.

Dip each tomatillo slice into the egg wash then breadcrumbs to form a coating. Add to the hot skillet, cooking until browned on each side, approximately one to two minutes per side. Drain on a wire rack.

To serve, place pimento cheese in the center of a platter, surrounded by fried tomatillo slices. Garnish with micro greens.
