Tomato and Cucumber Sandwiches
One of my favorite summer-time treats is fresh from the garden. Tomato and Cucumber Sandwiches. Fresh, light and healthy, this sandwich is simply heavenly when paired with a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade (splash of bourbon, optional).
8 slices of white bread - whole wheat is usually a healthier option, but this sandwich is best on white bread - trust me
2 ripe firm tomatoes, sliced
1 peeled and sliced cucumber
1/2 Walla Walla sweet onion, sliced (optional)
3 T. mayonnaise
1 t. lemon juice
1 T. chopped fresh dill
In a small bowl, combine the mayo, lemon juice and dill.
Spread mayo mixture on 4 of the 8 slices of bread
Arrange slices of tomato, cucumber and onion on top. Salt and pepper if desired
Finish with the second slice of bread
If you are lucky enough to grow (or can shop for) heirloom tomatoes, use them in this recipe! The fresh, sweet, tangy taste is divine.
I'm off to the kitchen now. I have some yummy sandwiches to make. The front porch is calling.
