I don't think there is an Italian alive today that has not enjoyed a luscious homegrown tomato sammie!  And I just can't wait for tomato season this year! 

These sloppy sammies are the absolute best – to die for!  These are the types of sammies you need to eat over the sink or wear with pride!
Begin by washing your tomato and onion, slicing and placing in a rimmed dish. Drizzle with olive oil – extra is good because you just sop it up with the Italian bread! Sprinkle with Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, and today I sprinkled a bit of dried basil on it – I didn't have any fresh to use. Believe me, it's equally good without it.

Let it sit on the counter for 20 minutes or so – this lets all those juices flow from the tomato into the oil.

Serve on crusty rolls, crusty Italian bread, homemade bread/rolls, French bread, ciabatta, or just enjoy as a salad while sopping' up those heavenly juices with your bread/rolls.

And don't forget to dip your sammie in the juices as you are eating this.

Best sammies in the world!!!

Give it a try.
