Mayo-less BLT

Author Notes: In summer when the garden is overflowing with tomatoes and basil, we seldom eat anything but BLT sandwiches, with or without the bacon. We've tried many variants, including sliced avocado, peppered bacon and horseradish, but this one is our favorite. Try with green zebra tomatoes.lylebama
