ARAM’S TOMATO PIE
Why it’s great from Chef Aram: “Everyone in South Jersey loves Tomato Pie, and what’s great is it’s easy to make!”
WITH PICO DE GALLO
Tips from Chef Aram about this recipe: “Schnitzel is very easy to prepare using a basic breading. You use boneless pork chops pounded thin, seasoned well with salt and pepper. Dredge pork with flour, then to egg wash, then to bread crumbs (I like the herbed ones). Deep fry using veggie or canola oil. Brown on both sides and they are done!”
For the pico de gallo:
Combine 3 large tomatoes, medium dice, 3 tablespoons diced red onion, 2 tablespoons small diced jalepeno (depending on how hot you like it), 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, juice from 1 lemon, with salt and pepper to taste.
