Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

Growing up in the 60s, we were very poor and my Mom, a widow with 6 kids, just couldn't afford lunchmeat. So, a sandwich of cheap white bread, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise was what we ate instead of pbj. Today, at 58, it's comfort food to me. But I'm now a tomato snob. It doesn't matter what kind of white bread. The brand of mayo doesn't long as it's Real mayo. But the lettuce can only be iceberg and the tomato has to be top notch with clear juice and no mealiness. Best eats any time of day!

I'm a west coast girl, can that explain why I've never heard of dukes?

Duke's is the mayonaise of the South East. It's the absolute best mayonaise and is made by Richmond, Virginia's Sauers.

Get Dukes

It is not sold out west at last check. I have had it shipped from their website. It's worth it by a wide margin.

Keep it simple

Toasted English muffin, Duke's, thick slab of tomato (salted and peppered), bacon and lettuce optional.

Fresca's tomato sammy rocks

Yes, it's strictly 'maters and Duke's on white at home, but Fresca's tomato sandwich in a baked-to-order pita slathered with wasabi mayo is a killer that I can't replicate in my own kitchen. Craving. One. Now.

That made to order pita sounds good - and might help catch the drips!
