Want to try to tomato sandwiches. Could you add cheese someway to this recipe? Just thought a little sharp cheese might be good. Don't know.

Great little sandwich. Light enough for a snack at the beach. For a little twist just add some fresh mozzarella cheese and a little balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!!

Love the tomato sandwiches recipe. In the summertime, I could live on tomato sandwiches. They are better than steak and these are as cute as pie!

Yay! These were delicious and pretty. Guests commented on how "fancy" they were lol! Served with chilled herbal tea. I am looking forward to serving them again at our Memorial Day picnic.

Love the Tomato Sandwich-one of my favorite summer quick meals. I know there was mention of a famous Tomato Sandwich served at the fancy parties in Savannah in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, were you the inspiration? One of my all time favorite books, got me hooked on Savannah. Mary Kay Andrews is another of my favorite southern authors, I would love to be in the contest to win her latest book.

Very easy to do! Very appealing to the eye and all ingredients are usually at hand. I had to leave out the onion as I'm allergic to them. Very tasty and can't wait to try with our summer tomatoes.

These are also good with a little bit of your favorite cheese on top. I like mozzarella or provolone.

I love these sandwiches, healthy and filling snack! My only change is Miracle Whip instead of mayonaise. Loyal to my dad's developments during his career with Kraft Foods!
