We have already mentioned how hot our summers can be -- but it's also a very special time of year. It's too hot to heat up the stove, so with great anticipation we head home hoping there is another red, ripe tomato on the vine. It's a simple pleasure and one not as hotly debated in the state as what sauce do you like on your barbecue -- vinegar or tomato!? We keep it simple and pure -- as it should be when preparing the Tomato Sandwich! There will be no fancy mayonnaise...just Duke's! There is no need for more than one kind of bread - WHITE. No Focaccia, wheat bread with sunflowers (great for other sandwiches!), subs or thin bagels!
We have been criticized in the past for posting the obvious - but we stand by our simple and perfect recipe. Our job is done!
