One thing I love about summer is a good tomato sandwich. Best made with a really beefy tomato, coarse salt, plain white fluffy bread, and mayonnaise. It's usually hard to find a really good tomato any other season except summer and in the past, I've always used ugly tomatoes. This weekend we made tomato sandwiches with tomatoes from our own garden! A first for me. We've got a few different varieties: Mr. Stripey, Mortgage Lifter, Yellow Taxi, and some others I can't remember. I think any variety of yellow tomato is my favorite. They make the best caprese salad!
I used a Mortgage Lifter to make these. Look at how big the slices are! As much as I love summer for it's longer days, watermelon, and tomato sandwiches- it was in the upper 90's last week. I'm not ready for all of that!
