Grilled Green Tomatoes with Creamy Basil Sauce

Ok so this is totally random, but one of my all time favorite movies is "Fried Green Tomatoes."  To be honest, when I used to watch the movie, I didn't really think it looked appetizing.  However, I was totally wrong.  I went to the Farmers Market and bought some green tomatoes and made this!  I hope you enjoy!

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 green tomatoes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. In a food processor, combine mayonnaise, basil, garlic, and lemon juice, and process until basil is finely chopped and sauce is smooth (add 1 to 2 teaspoons water if needed). Cut green tomatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices, brush with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until lightly charred and softened, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter and spoon sauce over top.
