Do you know anything better for lunch, dinner or snack, than a good BLT?  I don’t, and this one is over the top.
Browsing some preferred old food magazines (Cooking Light) I stumble upon a great BLT cover, and a recipe about heirlooms tomatoes! It’s winter and tomatoes are not what they should be. I still couldn’t resist, and gave a twist to the original  version with ingredients I had on hand. It came out super!
Once again, good quality ingredients are key here, bread, tomatoes, arugula and mozzarella. All fresh for a great sandwich!
