Try this simple sandwich, which is as good-tasting as it is simple to make. As gardens burst with the most delectable of produce, this is just one of many fabulous dishes that can be had with a minimum of effort.
For each sandwich:
- 2 slices excellent bread (I used WheatFields‘ Country French bread)
- 1 ounce (approximately) feta, cut into an 1/8 inch (3 mm) slice if you can manage it
- Thick tomato slices
- Salt and pepper
- 2 or more large leaves of sweet basil
Lightly toast bread. Top one slice with cheese then tomato slice (or slices, depending on the size and shape of your tomatoes). Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add basil leaves. Top with other bread slice, and serve.
That’s it. And it’s fabulous. Vary it as you like: try it with other cheeses; brush the toasted bread with olive oil or rub it with a cut garlic clove; eat it open-face.
