Other sandwiches I love that don’t require heating up are Prosciutto Arugula and Balsamic Sandwich, Greek Salad Sandwich and Tomato Roasted Pepper and Mozzarella Sandwich.

I bought the tomatoes at the farmer’s market and since my air conditioner wasn’t working I knew this would be my lunch. I love using fresh herbs from my garden, they always seem to taste better just knowing I grew them myself.

If you want to make a great tasting sandwich, use only the finest ingredients, period. The bread is the most important part of the sandwich in my opinion. If the bread tastes good on it’s own then you know you’re sandwich will be delicious. I used a fresh baked ciabatta, it has a crisp crust and a moist interior.

This sandwich required minimal effort and I’m not going to lie, I ate both servings for an 8 point lunch!

  1. Colours are just gorgeous!

  2. This was so great!!!! And I had both servings so very very filling!!!!

  3. This was a great sandwich! I love balsamic vinegar, so i added a drizzle of that and since i couldn't find heirlooms around here, used some tomatoes on the vine- it worked!

  4. I love how pretty the colorful heirlooms are but even home grown beefsteak tomatoes would be scrumptious!

  5. Love the colors! I wanted to let you know about my cookbook giveaway that is going on right now until July 16th. Stop on by to enter! Hope you are having a great week 🙂

  6. Tomato sandwiches are the best!!!

  7. I think what I like best about your recipes is the way the flavors of the ingredients are allowed to shine through, as in this dish. Perfect ingredients, perfect dish. It takes restraint to not get in the way and pollute them. I applaud you!

  8. For those of in the cold Pacific NW, we really really miss tomatoes like this! Come on sunshine!
