My Favorite Thing To Do With A Yellow Tomato

My Grandma used to grow yellow tomatoes special for me when I was little.
I didn't like tomatoes but for some reason she grew these yellow tomatoes and I LOVED them.
Being pregnant and unable to eat foods full of acid (they make me sick), I understand why I loved them.
1. The acidity in these tomatoes is lower...they taste almost sweet to me.
2. They we magical Grandma tomatoes.
3. They give me memories of my Grandma - especially this sandwich.
