I like to use our cherry tomatoes, by alternating Bite of Sammie, pop a cherry tomato, bite of sammie, etc, etc.....
Quite a sandwich. We really like good tomatoes, and detest the typical "Florida tube tomatoes" that are bred and grown for travel ability and not flavor. Unfortunately, we cannot grow them here because of a lot of shade. The grocery stores have what they call vine ripened tomatoes, but they are not nearly as good as a home grown variety.
We have found *one* store bought tomato that has flavor we like. It is the Campari variety and is packaged by Sun Nurseries out of Canada (but sometimes grown in Mexico). These tomatoes are almost the size of a golf ball. Bigger than those cherry tomatoes you showed, but not big enough for big full slices on a sandwich. But they do have a nice flavor. We get them at our local BJs. Costco also carries them. Even the grocery stores are starting to carry them, but at twice the price.
