My Mother has been eating these for so long that I remember turning my nose up at them in favour of Kraft Dinner. I`m not entirely sure what I was thinking as a teenager at the best of times – in this case I don`t have the foggiest.
I assure you that this is the most wonderful taste of fall I know.
Sandwich base (assemble from of list to bottom):
Fresh pumpernickel bread
Thick tomato slices (heirlooms optional)
Dressing (a standard oil and vinegar will do, here`s a sample):
Minced Garlic (I use a rasp to pulp it)
All the fresh herbs you have – chives, basil, oregano, parsley are all great in abundance
Honey (if you want)
Dijon (if you want)
I add salt, pepper, chili flakes.
Drizzle dressing on sandwich and wait for it to seep through to the bread. Give the flavors time to introduce themselves. Eat with knife and fork.
I know of nothing better than this awesome taste in the summer. What are your harvest favourites?
