I sliced my green tomatoes while I was browning some little sausage patties. By the time the sausage was done, I had dredged the tomato slices first in egg wash, then in corn meal. They were ready to fry in the same skillet, as I took the sausage out.
While the tomatoes fried gently in a little additional oil, I sliced the goat cheese log and got the pieces ready to coat with chopped walnuts & washed the salad greens! Out came the tomatoes, in went the salad greens to wilt.
I drizzled a tiny bit of balsamic over them and dropped them into the plate. Then I dipped the cheese in the chopped nuts and placed them in the same skillet. I didn't turn them, just toasted them on the nutty side. I plated the salad and topped it finally with a handful of fresh microgreens.
