Summer Eating: Simple Tomato Sandwich

August 14, 2013

A ripe summer tomato is truly a wonderful thing.  Often times, it is just enough to eat it as an apple with a sprinkling of sea salt.  This tomato sandwich celebrates this summer fruit simply and deliciously.

Tomato Sandwich

1 large beefsteak tomato
2 slices of multi-grain bread

salt and pepper

Toast the bread to your liking.  Spread the ricotta cheese on both sides of the bread.  Slice the tomato into ¼ inch slices.  Layer the tomatoes on top of the bread, sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
