Tomato Basil Sandwich

This sandwich is so delicious, easy to make and oh so messy! A great way to use up extra tomatoes. I saw a video by Melissa Clark for a tomato sandwich and went from there. Be sure to use a very rustic, dense, crusty bread for the best results. (This is not for your everyday white bread.) Have plenty of napkins on hand!
