Units Scale
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • small bunch of chives
  • 8 slices artisan bread like sourdough
  • 2 large heirloom or slicing tomatoes
  • flaky sea salt
  • black pepper
  • olive oil


  1. Prepare ingredients:
    Place mayonnaise in a small bowl.
    Use a microplane zester to grate garlic into mayo bowl.
    Zest and juice lemon (you’ll need half) and add 1 tablespoon lemon juice to mayo bowl. Set aside zest.
    Wash and thinly slice the chives.
    Slice bread.
  2. Slice tomatoes and lightly toast bread. You want the slightest hint of crunch.
  3. Layer mayo mixture on bread, and top sliced tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil,  flaky salt,  freshly cracked black pepper, a sprinkle of lemon zest, and a sprinkle of chives. 


  • Get your kids involved! They can: mix mayo mixture together, top their own tomato toast.
  • Wait to slice tomatoes until right before eating so that you retain as much of the juice as you can!
