I threw this together because I've had a busy day and I wanted something quick and easy. I had fresh basil and tomoatoes on hand for a recipe I'm making tomorrow, so I gave this recipe a try. This was a wonderful simple sandwich. I'll be making this again soon. Thanks!

Purple basil topped my tomatoes on this refreshing sandwich. I did not use salt and pepper but I think I'll use some cracked pepper next time. Easy and fun sandwich to make. Thank you for posting. Made for *ZWT4* 2008 game for the *Family Pick Round* I'm playing for *Tastebud Tickling Travellers*
