Inexperienced Goddess Tomato Sandwich Pleasure the Baker

Let’s discuss concerning the summer season tomato.  They’re at their greatest precisely ripe and with a contact of salt and pepper, they’re perfection.  Over the summers I’ve perfected my favourite tomato sandwich recipe.  It’s further – with Havarti cheese, avocado and a zippy grinder salad.  Right here’s how!

Sandwiches are higher in the summertime.  I don’t know the way that’s true, but it surely feels proper.

I’m at the moment mentally packing for slightly street journey again to New Orleans this weekend and certain, I’m excited about the issues Will and I’ll care for at The Bakehouse after we’re again but in addition… I’m excited about the street journey meals.  I’m excited about the sandwiches.

I’ve eaten a tomato a day for the previous week and might affirm, it’s certainly one of my higher summer season choices. I’ve eaten a salted tomato slice on a toasted corn tortilla over the sink however y’all don’t want a recipe to convey that little delight to life.  This next-level tomato sandwich although? That is what we have to discuss.

A correct tomato sandwich wants solely this stuff: a summer season tomato, salt, and a vinegar ingredient.  The salt and the vinegar make the tomato shine.  I’ve taken that idea to absolutely the max with this Inexperienced Goddess rendition of the traditional southern tomato sandwich.

And whereas this may be a dangerous sandwich to eat on a street journey, it’s scrumptious sufficient for regrets.

Listed below are the elements you’ll have to make this Inexperienced Goddess Tomato Sandwich:

•  a research loaf of seeded bread (or any type of bread you want greatest). I recommend a complete wheat bread or one thing slightly extra sturdy that white sandwich bread

•  rip avocado

•  ripe tomatoes – I used inexperienced heirloom tomatoes for this recipe although summer season beefsteak tomatoes additionally work effectively particularly in the event that they’re from the farmers’ market

•  sliced cucumbers

•  sliced Havarti cheese

•  vivid and tangy grinder salad (see the elements under)

Probably the most addictive a part of this sandwich is the grinder salad.  It’s vivid and zippy and crisp – I promise you’ll be snacking on this salad straight from the bowl earlier than it goes on the sandwich.

In a medium bowl we’ll whisk collectively:

•  Duke’s mayonnaise, pink wine vinegar, sliced pickled banana peppers, celery seeds, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper, thinly sliced pink onion, and thinly sliced iceberg lettuce.

Toss the salad till totally mixed and season to style with extra salt, pepper, or garlic as you’d like.  When you’re something like me, it’ll be arduous to avoid wasting this for the sandwich.

Let’s assemble the tomato sandwich.  Right here’s the place all of the love is available in.  Measure together with your coronary heart.

Give your loaf of bread a squeeze and determine whether or not or to not toast the slices of bread.  I often select untoasted for this sandwich for the reason that loaf is recent.

Unfold the thick slices of bread with mayo and layer with sliced cheese, tomato slices, avocado, cucumber, and the salad we made.

Deal with the tomato slices with further care with a sprinkle of salt and pepper to amplify their taste.  If the tomatoes are further juicy, I let the seasoned tomato slices remainder of a paper towel to take in some tomato juices earlier than the slices hit the sandwich.

Let’s be trustworthy, this sandwich is messy. Seize quite a lot of napkins.  To include all of that goodness, wrap every sandwich in a bit of parchment paper and refrigerate till they’re served.  Use a serrated knife to slice via the paper and the sandwich simply earlier than serving.

I imply… simply have a look at all these flavors and textures.  Each good tomato sandwich wants a success of salt and vinegar and this sandwich has that in spades!  It my greatest tomato sandwich thus far.

I do know what you’re considering: bacon.  You possibly can completely flip this sandwich into probably the most elegant mess of a BLT by including a pile of crisp cooked bacon.
