i remember when i was little, my mom would make this sandwich just for us girls, since my brothers and dad loved the big messy deli meat-filled sammies. she would make this quietly in our kitchen and often carry it to where i was, sit down near me and there we would share this perfect sandwich.
it's so simple, based off of fresh ingredients and hits it out of the park every single time. especially. and i mean ESPECIALLY if you are pregnant. if you aren't a fan of mayo, maybe try cream cheese. and don't shy away from good quality bread. it makes all the difference.
TOMATO + CUCUMBER ON THICK TOAST
a loaf of good bread, preferably sourdough or italian
sea salt + pepper
cut your bread into thick slices. throw in toaster or on broil in the oven for a few minutes, making sure each side is toasted. while it's toasting, slice your tomatoes and cucumbers. once the bread is done toasting, add your favorite amount of mayo and then layer on the tomatoes and cucumber. drizzle lemon (not too much, just a drizzle) and then add sea salt and pepper.
