What's for Dinner: P.L.T. (Prosciutto, Lettuce, Tomato) Sandwich with Basil Mayonnaise

A delightful sandwich like this "P.L.T.," made with savory prosciutto, dressed with zesty basil mayo and served on hearty ciabatta bread, makes a wonderful -- and quick -- dinner.

Servings: 4


  • 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves, chopped fine
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 ciabatta loaf or 4 ciabatta rolls, split in half
  • 1/2 pound prosciutto, sliced thin
  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce


In a small bowl, combine the basil and the mayonnaise and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Spread the mayonnaise on the bread. For each sandwich, top with a quarter of the prosciutto, 2 slices tomato and 1 lettuce leaf. Top with the remaining piece of ciabatta.

A serrated bread knife is good for slicing tomatoes too. Shop for a bread knife.
