It’s a simple fact that most good things are made better with frying, and tomatoes are no exception. These Fried Cherry Tomatoes are inspired by the Southern classic: fried green tomatoes. Honestly, there’s nothing like a tart, juicy fried green tomato, but sometimes perfectly under-ripe tomatoes can be difficult to source, making sweet cherry tomatoes an easy-to-find alternative! The spicy yogurt dip is the perfect cool and fiery counterpart to the savory-sweet fried tomatoes. Just a few basic pantry and refrigerator staples come together to make this dish, which I think is the perfect complement to porch drinks and easy summer living.
To begin, wash and dry some cherry tomatoes. I like two varieties, because the more color the better! Use whatever cherry tomatoes you like best.
