I used regular mayo as well! This is SO EASY! I used fresh local tomatoes-Cherokee purple I think-and fresh French tarragon from my garden. It was a heavenly combination! The only thing to top it would be using fresh homemade bread like the comment above. That would take it BEYOND heavenly...
I bought Sara Lee Whole-Wheat Honey bread instead. I'd never used tarragon before and wasn't sure how it would taste so I used both basil and tarragon on my sandwich and it was wonderful. I'm not even much of a tomato person but this was awesome!
This was a light and delicious meal. Even the family member who doesn't care for tomatoes thought that it had a delicious taste. We used Kraft mayo instead of the low-fat tarragon instead of the basil and we didn't use any added salt. I'm not sure how many extra calories the regular mayo added to the calorie count but the only other food that was served with this meal was fruit. In the summertime when it is too hot to cook this meal is quick and not too heavy on the tummy.
Loved this...used tarragon in the mayo..I also used regular mayo and the flavor was wonderful served this with the crab bisque from the same issue and the 2 made a wonderful pair...very light and good when the heat makes your appetite dry up
Tried this out for dinner this evening and I must say was very pleased. Like other reviewers I used full-fat mayo rather than the reduced version. Our Wal-Mart didn't have tarragon so I had to use basil. When I told my guy that I'd make him a tomato sandwich (and showed him the recipe) he about had a conniption. "A SANDWICH WITH NO MEAT!?" He was pleasantly surpised with the result though and I will no doubt be making this again. Quick easy and pretty darned tasty. Definitely a keeper. -Brandy
