Pickled Green Tomato BLT

Pickled Green Tomato BLT

During the fall when green tomatoes are around I always like to pickle some of them so that I can continue to enjoy them into the early months of winter. This fall was no different and I made several jars of them including a few jars where I sliced the green tomatoes thinly on a mandoline for use in sandwiches. Having recently enjoyed so many BLT sandwiches including more than a few fried green tomato BLTs, I was just itching to crack open one of those jars and use the pickled green tomatoes in a BLT sandwich along with some fresh, ripe red tomatoes. The pickled green tomatoes are a lot like your regular cucumber pickles but they are a bit crispier and more naturally on the tangy side. Many sandwiches would benefit from these tasty pickles especially a nice BLT where they complement the fresh juicy ripe tomatoes perfectly!

That looks so delicious! I'd never thought of pickled tomatoes before, but if they're 1/16 as good as fried green tomatoes then I'm in!!

Jenn said...

Yum!! A tangy touch to a classic sandwich. Besides I do like eating a BLT with a pickle spear, so why should this be any different right? :-D

I've never even heard of pickled anything other than cucumbers or beets... tomatoes sound interesting and delicious! I know what I'm going to be using some of my tomatoes for this summer now. Thanks for the idea and for stopping by!

All I have to say is that I hope there's going to be some kind of green tomato grilled cheese in your future. I always love your grilled cheese sandwiches.

And just when I thought a BLT couldn't get better...

I thought BLT is BLT and you can modify it in any way but now I can see you've made it even better. Gotta try it with green tomato.
