  • 1 large ripe heirloom tomato (at least 14 ounces), stemmed and cored
  • 8 slices of soft white sandwich bread
  • 8 tablespoons mayonnaise, preferably Duke’s or Blue Plate (may substitute a vegan brand such as Just Mayo), divided
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt or table salt, divided
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Step 1

Use a serrated knife to cut the tomato into 1/2-inch slices. Spread one side of each bread slice with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Lay a tomato slice on the mayo side of four bread slices. Sprinkle each with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a little pepper. Cover with the mayo side of the remaining four bread slices. Cut each sandwich in half, if desired, and eat immediately.
