There’s something magical about a simple bread-and-tomato sandwich, but this one is even better topped with melted provolone cheese and tarragon-garlic mayo.


  • 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon or basil or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 8 slices whole-grain country bread
  • 4 slices provolone cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 2 large or 3 medium tomatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), sliced 1/2-inch thick


Position a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat the broiler.

Mash the garlic on a cutting board with the side of a chef’s knife or a spoon until a paste forms. Transfer to a small bowl and combine with the mayonnaise, tarragon (or basil), lemon juice, pepper and salt.

Place the bread on a large baking sheet and broil until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the bread over and divide the cheese among 4 of the pieces. Continue broiling until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.

Assemble sandwiches with the tomato and the garlic-herb mayonnaise. Top with the melted cheese bread.
