Reader Mary Ann Upchurch from Hominy, Oklahoma, inspired these sandwiches, named after her mother's home state. A favorite summer comfort food, the griddle cakes her mom made were sandwiched with sliced tomato and Vidalia onion.


Recipe from


1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Salad greens
Red onion, thinly sliced


Process mayonnaise, cilantro leaves, lime zest, fresh lime juice, and garlic clove in a blender until smooth. Spread mayonnaise mixture over warm Summer Griddle Cakes. Sprinkle tomato slices with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, and sandwich tomato slices with salad greens and thinly sliced red onion between griddle cakes.
