Savor the Last Days of Summer

A refreshing tomato sandwich is exactly what you need on a hot summer day

With fall around the corner now is the perfect time to enjoy the last of this summer's tomatoes in a classic tomato sandwich. Do you have a go-to recipe?  You can dress a tomato sandwich up with some basil and mozzarella or keep it simple.  We've eaten a lot of tomato sandwiches this summer and this combo is always a winner:


  • Two slices of fresh sourdough

  • Your favorite slicer tomato (we're loving Cherokee Purple this summer!)

  • Mayo

  • Fresh basil, chopped

  • Salt and pepper


Slice the tomato into thick slices, enough to have two layers. lightly toast the bread, spread a little mayo on both sides. add the tomatoes, top with basil (the more the better), season with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy summer on a plate!
