Fancy BLT with Herb Mayo & Arugula
Everyone loves a good BLT! We jazz up this American classic with thick cut bacon, fat slices of tomato, herb mayo & fresh arugula.
I am desperately trying to hang on to summer… mainly to sustain my deep addiction to fresh tomatoes! We’ve been cooking all summer here in the Sumptuous Living kitchen and so we’re sending summer off with a bang with our last few summer recipes! Juicy tomatoes, sweet corn, and chilled watermelon are still available in your grocery store and until they’re gone we’re going to eat them up! Like with our BLT with Herb Mayo & Arugula. Toasted Sourdough, a zippy mayo packed with fresh herbs, thick cut bacon (here’s my favorite kind), fat slices of tomatoes, and peppery arugula make for one hell of good sandwich! The kind that runs down your arm while you eat it! My hubs always says, “A Messy Sandwich Is A Good Sandwich”.
TOMATO TIP #1: Don’t keep your tomatoes in the fridge. It KILLS the flavor!
TOMATO TIP #2: When buying tomatoes off-season, the only tomato I buy are Campari Tomatoes. These little gems are always tasty no matter what time of year and never have that mealy texture tomatoes can have off-season.
TOMATO TIP #3: Always cut tomatoes with a serrated knife. It keeps you from crushing the tomato while you cut it and we both know your regular knives need sharpening. Just sayin’…
