Tomato Sandwich with Lemony-Feta Spread

My mom came to help us unpack on Friday, so I made this for us for lunch. I used a nice ugly heirloom tomato and it was beautiful. The sandwich was absolutely delicious. I want to make this a million times.


Tomato Sandwich with Lemony-Feta Spread
CLBB (RebelYell18) / Everybody Likes Sandwiches

2 red + ripe tomatoes
1/2 red onion
2 T red wine vinegar
handful of fresh basil, torn
1/2 avocado, sliced
romaine lettuce
1 small block of feta cheese
1 T olive oil
1/2 c parsley
1/2 lemon, juiced & zested
salt + pepper
good bread, toasted

Cut tomatoes and onions into slices. Place in a shallow bowl and drizzle with vinegar and add some salt & pepper over top. Tear some fresh basil over top and marinate for 30 minutes. You can skip this step if you don't like a tangy sandwich!

In a small bowl, mash together the feta, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley together.

Toast the bread. Add feta mixture to one slice and mash avocado on the other slice. Add tomatoes and red onions and lettuce to the feta side and cover with the avocado side. Add salt & pepper if necessary.
