Let me tell you, there Ain't nothing in this world better than a fresh Garden Tomato with really good Mayonnaise and a little salt. These toilet stuffers they try to sell us today that came from the other side of Mars aren't worth bringing home. I feel sorry for the youngsters today that don't know the pleasure of wiping the soil from a fresh picked turnip and eating it with the plant still attached. God, I'm glad I lived when I did.
DH bought tomatoes on the vine for this recipe and it is simple but very good. I had Hellman's mayo on hand so used that and reduced the amount called for because the tomatoes were small.. Next time I think I will omit the salt and give the pepper an extra shake. Will be making this again especially with those fresh garden tomatoes this summer. Made and reviewed for the Diabetic Forum's National Tomato Month recipe tag game.
Yum, the epitome of summer, right here in a dish. How could you ever go wrong with fresh summer tomatoes from the garden and some good ol' mayonnaise? This is really perfect in everyway, and one shouldn't mess with absolute delight in the garden. The mayo HAS to be the good, or else don't bother. I used Hellman's but I suspect Duke's would be equally as satisfying. Thanks for posting such a lovely summer delight!
My mom would make this when I was younger and I love it to this day. Yummy yummy!
Lip Smacking Good. Simple as it is. It is great..Love my tomatoes .This is a great. Frest picked Tomato cut and chilled topped with your favorate Mayo. Anyones taste buds would go wild. Thank You for posting. Hugs
This was ok, reminded me of a toasted tomato sandwich... without the bread. Dads garden tomato wasn't quite ripe enough I think, maybe that would have made a difference. Served with Maple Glazed Ham Steak and Smashed Potatoes.
Now, I have never made tomatoes and mayonaise exactly like this before. However, when I was little, my dad would always slice up tomatoes, spread mayonaise on them, and then sprinkle them with salt and pepper for myself and him at lunch. I love doing that to this day, and probably have it once or twice a month. You have to make sure you have good tomatoes, though, otherwise the flavor is a bit bland and watery. I like either home grown tomatoes or hydroponic tomatoes. Thanks for posting!!
so i took this recipe and lets say ran with it....we grilled alot of baugers and had a few left over and i wanted something a bit different so i did your recipe and added the cold cuncks of my bugers and it was a nice treat and something different so thank for the insperation cara
We have a lot of tomatoes from our garden so I thought I would give this a try. You are right, simple and great tasting. Thanks for posting it.
There is nothing like fresh picked warm tomatoes from the garden, or purchased ones off the vine, with mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Add some crusty bread and butter. Yum.
