Southern Tomato Sandwiches
From Mama’s Table to Mine
Tomato sandwiches are something special in the South. You’ll find them at most afternoon get-togethers, from weddings to birthday parties to christenings. But since they’re so easy to make, you’ll also find them on the table on any given weekday. Fresh tomatoes paired with Vidalia onions — well, it just doesn’t get much more Georgia-sweet than that.
Makes 4 servings
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 Tbsp coarsely chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
8 slices whole-wheat or white bread, crusts removed**
2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced1 small Vidalia or other sweet onion
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, basil and pepper. Spread one side of each slice of bread with mayonnaise mixture. Top 4 slices of bread with tomatoes and season lightly with pepper.
Thinly slice one-half of onion into rounds, reserving other half for another use. Top tomatoes with onion rings. Cover with remaining bread slices and serve.
Serving size: 1 sandwich
