Tomato Sandwich with Olive Tapenade

Tomato season is upon us, we received a basket of cherry tomatoes and one regular sized tomato last week. Dave and I are both fans of BLT's (my all time favorite sandwich is the Avocado BLT with Coconut Bacon from a local restaurant). This sandwich took fresh tomato sandwiches outside of the BLT box and didn't require any cooking which is appealing in these hot August temperatures. We both enjoyed the finished sandwich -- the olive tapenade is briny, the everything hummus adds a savory layer or flavor, and the tomatoes can really shine. This recipe will make two large sandwiches.
