Start with fried green tomatoes from your favorite meat 'n' three restaurant. Bake them on a baking sheet at 350° for 5 minutes or until warm and crispy. Add sweet-hot pickle chips to the bun with wooden picks for a fun garnish.

1 1/2 cups shredded napa cabbage

1/2 cup mayonnaise

How to Make It
Stir together first 6 ingredients and 1/4 cup cilantro in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let stand 10 minutes.
Stir together mayonnaise, sriracha, and remaining 1/4 cup cilantro. Spread buns with mayonnaise mixture. Top bottom halves of buns with bacon, tomatoes, and cabbage mixture. Cover with top halves of buns, mayonnaise mixture sides down.
These sammys were very good. When preparing, I thought the veggie mixture was super bland. I added vinegar and a touch of sugar. I am not sure I would use the lime juice next time. I also made the fried green tomatoes from the Jul 03 issue instead of buying prepared tomatoes. I will definitely make these again.
