A good restaurant will try to find the freshest ingredients to serve to their patrons and cook seasonally. I try to apply the same principles at home because it really does taste the best and makes a world of a difference. I got a couple beautiful heirloom tomatoes from the farmers market, red leaf lettuce, a cucumber, fresh baked sour dough bread and made a veggie sandwich. I just get whatever looks good that day.
Makes 1 sandwich
2 to 3 tbs mayo
2 basil leaves julienne
Spread mayo mixture on 2 slices of bread
Place washed red leaf lettuce, peeled cucumber slices, tomato slices on the bread
How easy is that? I sound like Barefoot Contessa. Lol!
By the way, is there anyone else reading Bossypants? I am listening to the audiobook during my commute. Tina Fey narrates it and she is sooooo hilarious. I have been laughing out loud in the car by myself the past week or 2.
