A great sandwich to make when you have a garden of fresh basil and tomatoes. It is very easy to make and very yummy. I would recommend this as an open-faced sandwich for those who are watching their carbs.

This is SO SO SO very good. I used a reduced fat mayonnaise and added a touch more dijon mustard. My kids and I ate every bite of this. They had theirs spread on whole wheat bread I spread mine inside a hollowed out cucumber. Read More

Simple and delicious! I never would have thought to add basil to egg salad, but it really works. I cut the recipe in half and opted for Hellman's light mayo and in addition to the tomato slices I added thin sliced English cucumber. This perfect with a side of fresh fruit for a filling and flavorful lunch. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

This recipe earned each of its 5-stars. It is simply outstanding. The 1st time I made it exactly as written and was very pleased. The 2nd time I doubled the ingredients added extra fresh basil fresh minced onions minced orange bell peppers and chopped spicy pickles. Lordy Lordy I had to force myself to stop "tasting" it. Give this recipe a try. Quickly it will become one of your favorites! Read More

Wow this is really good and I followed it to a T. I think I've always added way too much mayo and other various wet ingredients, so this is so refreshing. Especially with the basil! YUM! Read More
