Nutritional information is approximate
Don't make this sandwich in advance. It will get soggy.
You can use vegan cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese for a vegan-friendly version
Use Roma tomatoes and slice them lengthwise. They are easier to pile on the sandwich
Make it a double-decker sandwich because it's more fun to eat it that way.
I used whole wheat bread because it's a little better than the white bread. It's also a little more denser so it doesn't get soggy too quickly.
I like to take the ingredients to work and assemble them at lunch time. This way, I can have the perfect tomato sandwich at lunch and not a soggy mess of a sandwich.
If you have time, marinate the tomatoes in olive oil for a few minutes. Or, use these
