Directions:
Slice tomatoes 1/4". Spread on plate. Sprinkle salt evenly over tomatoes. Continue placing tomato slices in layers over previous layer and sprinkle with salt until all tomatoes have been salted. Let the tomatoes sit (either at room temp. or in the fridge) at least 6 hours. This removes excess water so they will be nice and crispy.
Mix flour, salt, and pepper in bowl. Coat each slice with flour and let sit for 30 minutes. Heat oil in skillet to medium high. Place tomatoes in oil (reduce heat when necessary). Brown tomatoes on both sides, drain on paper towels.
