Not Your Ordinary Sandwich

During the summer, I love to eat fresh tomatoes from the Farmer's Market. Perfect in a salad or pasta, tomatoes are incredibly versatile. You could eat tomatoes prepared in a different way every day of the week. Be sure to check back next week for a very special post about a Tomato Festival and an opportunity for you!

A tomato sandwich is a simple and easy lunch. A fresh tomato with a little bit of salt and pepper is so good on toast. But today, I'm sharing my favorite tomato sandwich. I could LIVE on this sandwich during the summer. Slice a fresh tomato, heirloom are my favorite, and pair with fresh mozzarella. The secret ingredient in this super sandwich is pesto sauce and a few basil leaves. If the basil is fresh, even better! I also sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on the sandwich for an additional kick. So good!

More information about the Tomato Festival to follow!!

Happy Saturday! What are your plans for today? The heat wave has finally broken here, so I actually might spend some time outside today!



  1. oh yum! i blogged about the wonderful tomato sandwich last week -- it's the taste of summer for me!

    my little one and i are taking the train into boston today (about an hour from our house in the burbs) and shopping downtown, going to the children's museum, having lunch in the north end (italian section) and meeting friends on the waterfront for a play date -- should be a full day!

    hope you have a wonderful weekend!
