I have been making tomato sandwiches all my life just like this EXCEPT I do not care for Miracle Whip. I like mine with Hellmans (Best Foods) Real Mayonnaise. Also like a bit of basil on it.

What a delicious, fresh-tasting, summery lunch! I used a couple of gorgeous, ripe heirloom tomatoes, sweet onion, buttermilk bread (not homemade, alas--but still good!), and added fresh-ground sea salt and pepper. The sandwiches were divine, dripping with tomato juices running down our fingers to our arms. The only change I'd make is that I think we prefer the flavor of mayonnaise to butter with tomatoes. The onion and chives were a marvelous addition that really brought out the sweet, juicy goodness of the tomatoes. Thanks so much for sharing, Andi! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.

I love your simple recipes that are so tasty! My mom didn't make these for me when I was growing up,I bet she won't believe something this simple can taste so good. I made it around lunch time, so I could take photos and I ate if for dinner. I attemted to actually, coz DD attacked me and ate most of it. The onion was mellow by now ,so she could eat it too. She asked :"Auntie Andi can make soup(aka tomato soup) and sandwich too?"No chives for me,impossible to get them,but I bought the tomato smelling tomatoes.In summer, I'll make this a lot with real tomatoes and I can enjoy ice tea,too.Thanks for sharing,andi.

I had forgotten how much I enjoy a simple fresh tomato sandwich! This is a brilliant lunch, although I couldn't bring myself to follow step 7- in the middle of winter in the pouring rain! Thanks Andi for bringing back wonderful memories of eating these sandwiches years ago. Can't wait to try it with home-grown tomatoes next summer!

So simple and delicious! It's the perfect time of year here to showcase the gorgeous fresh tomatoes, and this was an excellent way to do so. I used a white candy onion, and it was lovely. Thanks for sharing!

I forgot just how delicious these are. Sometimes less is just SO MUCH MORE! I make my own breads so enjoyed this little delight on some freshly-sliced crusty french bread. My father ate Tomato Sandwiches for years like this. I first tried them with butter and without mayo when I was a teen. There just isn't anything better. (Note, I use real butter. No substitute for it.) Thank you for lunch today, Andi.

Even tho everything was fresh from the garden, it needed a bit more seasoning for us than just the fresh chives. Using a whole grain fresh baked bread helped a lot but it still needed something more for us. I raided the herb garden and was pleased with the results when added with the whole grain fresh baked bread. 5 with the changes.

It truly doesn't get any better than this. I used vidalia onions and added salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper. Summer's finest sandwich. Thanks Andi.
