MUST use garden fresh tomatoes for the best flavor to shine through. I love it best on large slices of toasted sour dough bread, although homemade or another crusty bread works well too. Try adding a few snippets of fresh basil or chives. We sometimes like a thin layer of ham added to this. Sounds weird to have buttered toast with a tomato, but trust me it's to die for. I get to craving this every spring as I transplant tomatoes into my garden. In recent years it has gotten particularly tiresome to watch as the pesky squirrels in our neighborhood steal my red beauties and I find them tucked away in the boughs of the trees. Anybody know how to keep them away from my tomatoes? I didn't get one out of 8 plants this summer. Ugh!
