I don’t know how many people eat toasted tomato sandwiches, but they’re a staple in my house in the summer. They’re healthy, and light on the stomach, which is perfect for hot summer days when you don’t want to cook really, and when you’re tired of your regular other sandwiches.
1 medium sized tomato
2 slices of bread
Obviously, this is an incredibly easy sandwich to make. You wash your tomato and slice it. You usually need about 4 slices per sandwich but cut enough so that you fill a piece of bread.
As you’re cutting your tomato put your 2 pieces of bread in the toaster. Toast the bread as dark or as light as you want. Once the bread is toasted layer on your sliced tomatoes and dash on some pepper.
You can, of course, add other things to the sandwich if you so desire. Mayo is always a good option, as well as lettuce and other kinds of veggies. But I will admit that in my house we are strictly just a tomato, bread and pepper kind of household. Though as you can see in the picture below, I do add some pickles on the side. Other side options are: celery, green onion, or carrots.
Serve it while it’s still hot, and it’s delicious. It’s a light summer lunch that’s easy peasy to make and very healthy.
