The Tomato Sandwich

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!

Tomato Sandwich

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.

"A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins."
-Laurie Colwin, Home Cooking

My favorite sandwich. Except I use Miracle Whip and no salt or pepper. Yum.

That is my favorite dressing too! I hesitate to suggest it in recipes though. It seems a lot of people are die hard mayo fans :)

I have to have Hellman's. And I also like one thin slice of swiss cheese and a slice of lettuce.

Your tomatoes are late, aren't they? I've gotten dozens already. Wow, they give you that tickle in the back of your cheek because they are so sweet.

Sweet- thank you! I'm always glad to have people stop by and say hello :)

Debi- Yeah, these gardens up north here are tough. We get a late start (last frost date: after May 15th) and chilly temps start after Labor Day. I start my tomatoes inside in early spring but it still seems everything grows slowly. But eventually, I will get my tomato sandwich!!
