This twist on the traditional BLT sandwich has all the best parts of the sandwich, served with a bit of flair. Ripe tomatoes drizzled with a basic homemade vinaigrette that uses Dijon mustard for unexpected bite steal the show. Because the tomatoes play such a major role, be sure to pick only the best—your taste buds will thank you! French baguette slices smothered in goat cheese round out this delicious dish.
Pro tip: Tomato “shoulders” are tender, so to avoid bruising, store tomatoes stem side up.
