Tomato and Lettuce made with Our Garden Tomatoes

Just had my favorite summer sandwich..a simple tomato and lettuce on toast, with mayo and a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper...Tomatoes are getting nice and ripe and a sandwich made with a great Jersey tomato is a short season treat. For a change, tomorrow I'll add some Bacon and make it a BLT...Any one enjoying this treat? How are your tomatoes this season??

    Funny you should mention! I'm sitting here eating a Lettuce, Tomato & Sliced Hard Boiled Egg on Toasted Whole Wheat Sandwich as we speak! The beefsteak tomatoes are from a farmers market--Next best thing to home grown. Life is good!

    Love it, only I rarely toast the bread.  Had two last night.  And you're not just whistlin' Dixie on the sea salt.

    Come to think of it, I don't think there's ANY sandwich that you can't put tomatoes on. Can you name one?

    Just did a BLT last night using yellow heirloom tomatoes and in-house made Danish bacon from one of our local independent grocers.  Very tasty!

     Tomatoes on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich doesn't sound too good to me.

    You bet, leethebard. Nice toasted Italian bread from Anthony's Bakery Denville NJ, slathered with some Duke's mayo that my wife brought home from a  trip to Florida and our NEPA homegrown Jetstar 'maters. Mouth watering, for sure. It's a summer treat we look forward to every year.
    With all the heat and humidity we've had this summer, our tomatoes are the best they've been in abut 3 years.

    I guess it would depend on the flavor of jelly you used. I'll try one and let you know. Will use Crunchy PB & Strawberry Jam.

    Tomato Sandies, Yes Indeed! I don't have a garden, but the East Texas tomatoes this year are wonderful. I've been eating ET tomato sandwiches (thin wheat bread, a dab of Hellman's Mayo, Jane's Crazy Salt, fresh ground pepper & tomatoes) for over a month & relishing every one. It's one of the short list of foods that just sing SUMMER to me! .. "Get it while you can..."

    Sometimes I add a little basil oil to my mayo.......it's kinda cool having green mayo on my sandwich.
     
    Normally I only use basil mayo on my basic Wonder bread (un-toasted), tomato, S&P, and basil mayo sandwich.

    leethebard,  Our tomatoes are really excellent this year! We've been enjoying them for a couple of weeks now. I love adding some basil to my tomato sandwiches!

    I'm waiting for the produce stand down the road to put up their annual sign announcing that the "Imported NJ tomatoes are in".

    My fave is a nice tomato / fresh mozz salad with some basil, a little olive oil and some balsamic.  We have some nice cherry tomatoes we do that way which is great as a fresh side dish.

    Can't handle the fresh basil, but I use Romaine or leaf lettuce whenever I can.  For some reason, fresh basil doesn't agree with my palate.  Interestingly, I like dried basil just fine.  Go figure.

    Another favorite is a tomato & slaw sandwich.  I spread homemade slaw on one slice of bread and plop a thick-sliced tomato on the other.  A little sea salt and freshly ground pepper, too.  Hubba Hubba.

    Fresh NC tomato from my backyard, squishy white bread, mayo, salt and pepper. The only thing wrong is that my tomatoes are so ripe that you have to inhale the sandwich before it gets overly soggy! I like my tomato sandwiches on untoasted bread but my BLT on toast. Add a little avocado for a treat!

    Did not have home made slaw, but put some on today's sandwich...not bad, actually!

    Tomato & lettuce sounds like a "Depression sandwich" then you got a job, brought home the bacon, it turned into a BLT........I do agree with you, I used to make a veggie sandwich, with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, mushrooms, cucumber, onion, avocado, on a good wheat bread...............The crunch is what made it...........BillyB

    I love fresh Jersey tomatoes. Been picking some beefsteaks out of the garden. Good stuff. Corn should be ready soon too. (I planted late)

    Next to blt, my favorite other sandwich is chicken on white bread, mayo, and topped with sliced Creoles(Celebrity, Big Boy).  

    I also like to make what a friend who gave me the recipe called "Mexican dip" >  2-3 diced fresh tomatoes, chopped mild chiles, sliced black olives, green onions, oil and vinegar, garlic salt.  It's light and refreshing, scoop it with tortilla chips, and though it's not spicy, you could make it that way.
