A ripe summer tomato is truly a wonderful thing. Often times, it is just enough to eat it as an apple with a sprinkling of sea salt. This tomato sandwich celebrates this summer fruit simply and deliciously.
1 large beefsteak tomato
2 slices of multi-grain bread
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
salt and pepper
Toast the bread to your liking. Spread the ricotta cheese on both sides of the bread. Slice the tomato into ¼ inch slices. Layer the tomatoes on top of the bread, sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
