Summer Tomato Bounty
by Leslie Schlernitzauer
Tomatoes Tomatoes Tomatoes –I can’t get enough of them. I like heirloom, cherry, grape, whatever I can get my hands on.
We love getting ours from the farmers market on Kings Drive!
Tomato Sandwiches are a Southern favorite. Although each person you ask has their own version.
My less healthy version looks like this – Merita white bread (untoasted) sliced tomatoes, Duke’s mayonnaise, kosher salt and white pepper.
My “healthy” version uses Whole Grain Bread (toasted), sliced tomatoes, Duke’s mayonnaise, avocado, thinly sliced vidalia onions, salt and white pepper. A summer Southern must – no matter how you spread the mayo!
On the topic of mayo – there are very few actual southerners that would use anything besides Duke’s. The transplants struggle but we still love you just don’t make my tomato sandwich!
One more thing if you frequent the low country. You must try Natural Blonde in your bloody mary made from local yellow tomatoes – honestly heavenly!
