Tomato Sandwich Ideas
Any time of year is a good one when you are making a sandwich with tomatoes. The summer tomatoes are especially succulent. Their jewel tones and juicy texture can make any sandwich an eating event. Bursting with flavor and nutrition, they are hard to beat as a sandwich ingredient.

Low in calories, 149 grams, or just a little over 5 ounces, has only 27 calories and 6 grams of carbohydrate with 2 grams of fiber. They are full of Vitamins C and Vitamin A, comprising 32% and 25% of the Daily Value for good nutrition. Tomatoes are also good sources of Vitamin E Vitamin K, Potassium, Manganese, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Copper.

When your vines are producing a bumper crop of tomatoes, or it is the end of the season, and you don't want to lose tomatoes to frost, it is time to fry some green tomatoes. Just dip slices of those little green beauties into some milk and egg mixture, and dredge them in a 50/50 mixture of your favorite fish fry mix and cornmeal. Fry them in a heavy skillet until they are golden to dark brown. I like to add a tiny bit of bacon grease to my oil to enhance the flavor. Fried green tomatoes are delicious sandwich fillings.

When the fresh tomatoes of summer are gone, you can still have good tomato taste for your sandwiches. Buy Campari tomatoes. They are small, but they don't taste like cardboard tomatoes. Campari tomatoes have a sweet little acidic kick. They are available all year. My favorite brand is Sunset Campari. I have seen them in other grocery stores, but Costco has great prices and is a reliable source. Use tomatoes as a delicious condiment or the main sandwich event! Slice them thick, or slice them thin, these little fruits really deliver taste, color, and interest to your sandwich meals.
