Sometimes the most delicious recipes are the simplest. Who has ever thought they didn’t like tomatoes, and then tried a fresh, in-season heirloom tomato? They may as well be different vegetables. (Fruits?)
Today I have for you a sandwich that isn’t much of a recipe, but it deserves attention. It’s tomato season, ya’ll. Don’t let it pass you by without making this sandwich.
Choosing Your Ingredients
Start with your freshest homemade sourdough, or a good stand-in from the store. Lather on some recently made homemade mayo, or use a store bought version that doesn’t use vegetable oils.
Next, sprinkle on some sea salt and freshly picked herbs. Slice your prize garden tomato (or one from the market) and layer it on top. It’s so good, right?

There’s nothing like a ripe tomato sandwich! Thanks for sharing, it was perfect. Love the addition of fresh basil!
Summer’s best guilty pleasure! There is simply nothing that can compare to fresh, vine-ripened, home grown tomatoes. This sandwich was a delicious showcase.
Simple and delicious. Love this classic recipe.
I’d forgotten how delish a simple sandwich with great ingredients could be. This sandwich was perfect! Now I want more 🙂
