OKAY. Finally. Our first evergreen tomato is ready to be picked! I almost feel like we should have a tomato "celebration"! Kinda like Thanksgiving in August! Not sure it has been worth all of the waiting and babying of THE tomato plant...but I am not complaining because it is going to be worth every bite! The question was this. What was going to be the very first thing to make with the very first tomato? Tacos? Tomato Pie? BLT'S minus the bacon? Pasta Caprese? You have no idea how I have fretted! Not really, but it just sounded good! :}
We are making one of our favorite summer sandwiches and it is going to be AMAZING with our little home grown tomato...yep.yep.yep!
Sourdough bread...the best you can get!
Pesto mixed with a bit of mayonnaise
Provolone cheese slices
Thinly sliced tomato with a bit of salt sprinkled on top
Thinly sliced cucumbers
Thinly sliced red onion
Thinly sliced lettuce
*Take two slices of bread and lay them out on a cutting board
*Put mayonnaise and mustard on one slice
*Put pesto mayonnaise on the other slice
*Place cheese on one slice of bread and the veggies on the other slice
*Place both slices together to make a sandwich
*Cut sandwich in half...it is the polite way to eat a sandwich, you know...
Serve with dill pickles and KETTLE CHIPS and a BLACKBERRY MILKSHAKE with a big, thick straw.
What is the first thing you like to make with your tomatoes? Maybe you just eat it off the vine...which sounds even better!!!
