Tomato Sandwich

Sandwiches can be either a heavy meal or you can make it as a light snack. Raw vegetables are most commonly used in sandwiches. However, the recipe that I am sharing today is a sandwich with a tomato filling in between. 

I remember making these sandwiches in bulk and sharing it with my colleagues and also packing them for my husband’s colleagues and friends. The best part about these delicious sandwiches is that it tastes equally good even after it is cold.

I hope you enjoy making this one.
