millers fried green tomato salad - 2Miller’s has stepped it up for the warmer months with some new menu items, including a twist on my favorite Southern summer staple. While a Fried Green Tomato Salad may sound like a healthy makeover of this classic, please remember this is Miller’s we’re talking about: healthy need not apply.

This salad consists of five deliciously fried tomato slabs covering a miniscule sprinkling of salad greens. The genius of the dish comes in the goat cheese and cucumber salsa that is layered over the tomatoes, adding a cool creamy balance to the hot fried deliciousness. Buttermilk dressing generously tops it all for a decadent dish best experienced with a midday beer on the patio.

Speaking of decadent, also on the menu is the new “Hotlanta Burger,” which is a burger version of the salad with meat topped with fried green tomatoes, goat cheese, and the cucumber salsa. If anyone has tried it, I’d love to hear the report.
