Simple Summer Pleasure


I am giving you a "secret" summer recipe that is a favorite of ours. We love it so much because it is so delicious and easy---perfect for lazy, hazy, summer afternoons. You know the kind----too hot to cook and almost too hot to eat. So here goes-----


Tomato Basil Sandwich

-sliced garden tomato(NOT those cardboard tasting kind the grocery store sells)

-FRESH basil leaves

-Mayo. We prefer Hellmeans REAL mayo

-freshly ground pepper and salt

-bread

Spread both sides of bread with a light coating of mayo. Stack the tomatoes and basil on and sprinkle with salt and pepper

Place sandwich on paper plate(no clean up) and sit outside with a glass of iced tea.
Disclaimer: These tomatoes are NOT from our garden. Here we are into August and all we have are green ones growing slowly. Also, Dan wants you to know the Light Mayo isn't as good on these sandwiches. ENJOY!
