Turkey Sandwich with Heirloom Tomatoes and Arugula

It's just about time to rename Sunday to Sandwich Sunday. Yesterday at the Farmer's Market we picked up a Pugliese loaf and a couple of heirloom tomatoes; Wednesday I picked up some arugula. Today a sandwich was born.

1 loaf of pugliese bread, tapered ends cut off, then cut in half
mayonnaise
1 heirloom tomato, sliced thin
1/2 lb deli sliced turkey, or whatever bird you choose
arugula

Well, its a sanwich - assemble it however you like! I put the mayo on the bottom, then turkey, then tomato, then arugula.

This batch of arugula was particularly peppery and the bite gave the sandwich an extra dimension of flavor.

The best part was the fresh bread - Even Nugget Pugliese, which I think is great, could not even come close to this bread. On Wednesday when I go to the FM, I will find out who the baker is and thank him/her.
