12 Fresh Tomato Sandwich Ideas
My mother raised the tastiest big slicing tomatoes when I was in high school. There was a tiny strip of dirt by the driveway beside our apartment building. Mother asked if she could put in a few tomato plants. Her tomatoes, planted in such a humble unlikely place, paid dividends all season long. This was the summer when I first discovered that a tomato on a sandwich didn’t have to be an anemic pale slice. It could be transformative, bright red and bursting with flavor. I found that thickly sliced tomato on white bread with mayo can be taste bud heaven! Below, you will find a dozen more delicious taste treats made with tomatoes. If you cannot get garden or farm fresh tomatoes, go for the Campari tomatoes. I like the Sunset brand. They are the best store-bought tomatoes that I have found.
