Step 1. Go to the farmer’s market (if you live in Brooklyn, try Grand Army Plaza on Saturday; in Manhattan, go to Union Square on M,W,F, or Sat.; outside of NYC, try here)
Step 2. Get yourself these ingredients:
- Healthy Multigrain Bread (sliced or unsliced) from Bread Alone
- Heirloom Tomatoes from Evolutionary Organics
- Goat Cheese from Lynnhaven Farms
- Thai Basil from Phillips Farm
Steps 3-12. Bring home your treasures, and get out the toaster. Slice the bread (if it’s not already) and throw it in the toaster. Pick and wash the basil. Wash and slice the tomato. Take that bread out of the toaster. Slather on the goat cheese (don’t be shy!). Place the tomato slices on top of the cheese. Sprinkle a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper on the tomato. Cover that layer with the basil leaves. Pour a bit of EVOO and balsamic on the other slice of bread (be careful not to overdo it, unless you like a soggy sammy). Place that slice on top of the pile of goodness. Slice down the middle.
Step 13. Eat it up, yum!
