Simple, delicious summer in a sandwich. Who doesn’t love garden fresh tomatoes? We’ve got several tomato plants growing in our square foot garden. I’ve been a little disappointed because they haven’t produced as much as I wanted. I’m not sure if it’s the weather (it’s been a cool, rainy summer) or our gardening abilities or a vile combination of both. We have managed to get a few tomatoes off the vines and I turned one into a tomato sandwich for lunch.
You’ll need a garden fresh tomato. If you’re not lucky enough to have your own garden, maybe you’re blessed with a lovely, beautiful friend who gifts you with tomatoes instead of zucchini. If not, you’ll need to hit a farmers market. Store-bought tomatoes will not do for a good tomato sandwich.
Slice the maters and lay the slices on paper towels to absorb some of the extra juiciness. Grab 2 slices of bread. Spread one side with mayo and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, close the sandwich and take a big bite. Wash it down with a big gulp of sweet tea.
