From Kat Kinsman over at CNN comes this celebration of the most wonderful thing in the world – Home grown/Farmers Market TOMATOES – and turning them into the best sandwich possible. And since it’s tomato season – the best time of year – we knew you’d appreciate this.
A tomato and mayonnaise sandwich on store-bought white bread is the finest sandwich known to mankind.
This is not up for debate, and the ingredients are not negotiable. Salt and pepper are permissible, but if you try to get schmancier than that, you’ll screw it all up, and your sandwich should be taken away from you until you learn to properly appreciate the simple perfection of this combination.
You will not have the opportunity to eat one between, say, mid-September and the beginning of next August, so it’s best that you consume them as frequently as humanly possible while tomatoes are in season. One a day would not be overkill and you and your physician should just devise a plan for counteracting any potential over-mayonnaising you may encounter during this period of your gastronomic life.
There may not be Duke’s mayonnaise for sale where you live. That’s a shame, and you should really try to get some, because it’s markedly less sugary than other commercial mayonnaise brands and allows the tomato slices to sing their luscious, sweet and tangy tune.
