Classic Fried Green Tomatoes and Creole Remoulade Sauce Recipe

I was beyond excited when my friend Dena brought over some goodies from her Mom's garden. I knew we had to make some fried green tomatoes when I saw the green tomatoes in the bag! Yum!! Fried green tomatoes are super easy to make as well as the remoulade sauce. They pair well together and the flavors are so good!! These recipes are the perfect addition to any Southern Cajun meal! Enjoy!!
