Summer Tomato Toasts

I always make sure to grab a few different colored tomatoes for these toasts purely for aesthetic reasons. They’re just so pretty! I mean, just look at that yellow one. It’s a tomato rainbow! A Tomainbow, If you will.

I added some fresh herbs (big fresh herb guy) to this toast to jazz it up just a bit but if you want to leave it plain, that’s your call! If you do decide to herb it up, might I suggest chives and basil? Roughly chopping the chives and leaving the basil whole or tearing it into big pieces will look really pretty and instagram-y.

For the mayo, I’ll go with Hellmann’s if I’m feeling traditional or Vegenaise if I want something a little zestier.

And lastly, salt and pepper! Don’t be shy with the S & P. I used one of my favorite flaky sea salts and coarsely ground pepper.

And that’s it. Enjoy tomato season!
