    I have a great recipe for making fried green tomatos but am searching for a recipe for a dipping sauce to go with them. Any suggestions?

    I got a ton of frozen crab cakes on an amazing sale during Lent, and they expire really soon. Besides just serving them with a side, what can I do with them? They’re Mrs. Paul’s if that helps with knowing the breading type and such.
