A Perfect Summer Sandwich: Heirloom Tomatoes with Garlic-Caper Aioli and Arugula

Monday, August 26, 2013

Summer eating at its simplest and best: sliced colorful heirloom tomatoes with creamy garlic and caper aioli on whole grain bread. So, so delicious.

When it comes to summer sandwiches, you can never go wrong with a classic tomato, basil, mozzarella, and pesto on baguette. Yet once in a while you just want to mix things up a bit. Thus was the inspiration for this sandwich, which I wrote about two years ago when I first began blogging. At that time I only had about four readers, however, so my guess is you’ve never seen that post. Therefore, I decided to take some prettier photos and reshare the recipe after making it again this past weekend.

And make no mistake: this sensational sandwich is utterly deserving of an encore.

May they inspire you to enjoy summer-sweet tomatoes in new ways—while they still last.
