Although our tomatoes are not ready yet, I have been yearning for tomato sandwiches. The tomatoes in the stores have that wonderful summer taste and ripen up so juicy and delicious. There are so many ways you can dress up this sandwich, but I think I will keep to the basic tasty recipe. It's just too good!
2 slices of regular or good quality white bread
1/2 cup mayo or salad dressing
salt and pepper to taste
1 ripe tomato
Spread the mayo on each slice of bread. Cut the tomato to fit bread or if you have a smaller tomato, cut 2 to 3 slices and fit onto bread. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover with other slice of bread and cut sandwich in half, if desired. Serve.
You can also toast the bread, which is also delicious.
