Crabmeat over Fried Green Tomatoes

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Creole mustard
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons green onions (green part only, finely chopped)
  salt to taste
  freshly ground black pepper to taste
  hot sauce to taste
1 pound lump crabmeat
2 pounds green tomatoes, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  salt to taste
  freshly ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 cups bread or cracker crumbs
Combine mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, onion, parsley and green onions in a bowl and stir to blend. Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Add crabmeat and gently toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate. Season the tomato slices with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Put the flour in a shallow bowl and the cornmeal in another shallow bowl. Combine the buttermilk and eggs in another bowl. Dredge the tomatoes in the flour, coating evenly on both sides, shaking off excess flour. Dip tomatoes in the egg and buttermilk mixture, coating evenly. Dredge them in the cornmeal, coating evenly, shaking off excess cornmeal. Add the tomatoes to the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Arrange greens in center of plate and top with fried green tomato slices and crabmeat mixture. Serve immediately.
