For the Vidalia Onion Relish

450ml vegetable or peanut oil, for deep-frying

Freshly ground black pepper
Vidalia Onion Relish:

1) Slice the tomatoes .5-cm thick. Lay them out in a shallow baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Place the tomato slices in a colander and allow time for salt to pull the water out of the tomatoes, approximately 30 minutes.

2) In a skillet, heat the oil for deep-frying over medium-high heat.

3) Dip the tomatoes into buttermilk, then dredge them into flour with a dash of pepper. Deep-fry until golden brown. Keep warm.

For the relish:
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate for a few hours.
