Over the years, we’ve become beach people. There’s nothing quite as relaxing as spending the day at the beach, reading and playing in the sand. While I typically throw whatever we have on hand in the cooler, sometimes I’ll make up sandwiches; like these tomato sandwiches.
This tomato sandwich is my perfect beach pairing. The salty taste from the olives and cheese is the perfect compliment to a thick slice of summer tomato. Add to that a large slather of hummus and you’ve got a perfect vegetarian sandwich.
One quick note: this recipe uses a half-batch of my olive tapenade cooking component. I would recommend making the full batch if you plan on cooking throughout the week. The olive mixture is wonderful with pasta, on pizza, and even with morning eggs.
