Summertime Tomato Sandwich

IMG_1682 (Large)

Every summer I get a craving.  A really really big craving.  Once I start seeing fresh summer tomatoes I have to have a tomato sandwich.  Have you ever made one? If not I highly suggest you give it a try.  It’s amazingly delicious and super simple.  I like mine on toasted bread, a little mayonnaise and tomatoes seasoned with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. It’s a perfect summertime sandwich Smile

    I am a tomato addict! I eat them straight from the garden with a little salt. A tomato sandwich sounds awesome though- I will make on soon with a little hummus! Happy weekend

    You know, I don’t know how long it’s been since I had me a tomato sandwich. Sounds great–thanks for reminding me about it! One of my favorite books was Harriet the Spy, who loved tomato sandwiches, and that’s how I discovered them. Never heard of them before that!

    There’s nothing like it. Tomatoes right from the garden and fresh bread. I have dreams about it!

    I love tomatoes so much I don’t even add the mayo in my sandwich! I think I could eat it every day and never get tired of it.

    Add a slice of smoked gouda and put it in the panini press and it is my favorite sandwich. Love those fresh tomatoes!

    I’m a very new tomato convert and lately the thought of a tomato sandwich certainly appeals to me. Mmm….
