  • Crusty French Bread
  • In season beefsteak tomato cut thick
  • 2 teaspoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic minced
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper
  • ¼ Avocado per sandwich sliced
  • Pickled red onion to taste thinly sliced (can substitute rinsed non-pickled red onion)
  • 2 in strips of cooked Bacon per sandwich cut half
  • cup ¼ scant Arugula per sandwich


  • In a small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegars, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Thickly cut the tomato in ½” slices. If you do not wish to pickle the onion, you can place the onion slices in the container with the tomatoes and drizzle over dressing. Let this marinade for at least two hours, periodically re-spooning the mixture over the top.
  • Toast bread and brush with marinade. Top with tomato, sprinkle with salt and pepper then add onion, bacon, arugula and avocado.
