How to Cut a Tomato
This may seem ridiculously simple, but it's a little trick I use when I need a nice juicy slice or two of tomato for a sandwich or a veggie burger. This method does a few things:
* it gives you a big, center slice of tomato without messing with the blossom end or stem which doesn't make a good sandwich slice anyway
* it lets you store the rest of the tomato without the cut end touching the plastic wrap
* the left over tomato stays fresh in the refrigerator longer
Here we go!

|Cut a slice or two|
|Place the remaining tomato top over the bottom. |
It should fig snug.
|Place in a baggy. |
Don't worry, the open tomato won't touch the plastic.

Using a round, whole grain bun is perfect.
