Open-Face Tomato-Basil Sandwiches

Sometimes the first tomatoes of the season need a little help in the taste area—and that’s where these open-face sandwiches come in. The blended yogurt-basil sauce adds just the right tang while a quick trip under the broiler helps concentrate the tomatoes’ natural juices.
