Tomato Basil Sandwiches is a  great summertime entree.  They are easy to make, and the tomato-basil is very refreshing.  When it starts getting hot outside, I start looking for recipes that don’t require a lot of prep work or cooking.  These Tomato Basil Sandwiches can be made on the grill, along with corn or other veggies to be served as a side dish.  However, I like to use a Panini press or similar indoor grill sometimes instead of cooking outside, especially when it is really hot out.

No cheese is necessary on these sandwiches, the mayonnaise-pesto mixture add a delicious creamy flavor that is out-of-this-world amazing.  Kalamata olives have a very distinct flavor, and by adding a few on each sandwich something special happens.  They help to make the basil and pesto, not as powerful and works wonderfully with the other ingredients.  I love to make these Tomato Basil Sandwiches with just picked veggies from my garden.  This is a great way to use you homegrown summer tomatoes and herbs.
