Michigan Tomatoes and How to Enjoy Them (Part One – Michigan Tomato Sandwich)

It’s Michigan tomato season once again and I can’t help but feel excited over this year’s bumper crop of beauties, especially after last summer’s attack of late blight. And after suffering through colorless and tasteless store-bought tomatoes most of the year, it’s especially blissful when locally grown produce hits the stands and my husband and I can once again savor the true deliciousness of our favorite “fruit”.

So, in honor of this year’s bountiful tomato crop here in the Great Lakes State, I’ll be offering up a series of posts on how we like to best enjoy our scrumptious Michigan tomatoes.

The simplest method, not to mention my husband’s favorite, is with a clean towel and a salt shaker. But here’s my favorite: the Michigan tomato sandwich.

Michigan Tomato Sandwich – a vegetarian delight!

This is not a BLT as bacon is neither needed nor desired. This sandwich is best when the flavor of fresh, locally grown tomatoes is allowed to take center stage!
