1 garlic clove, minced
1 pinch kosher salt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped
Lemon juice, to taste
4 slices white bread
6 small or 3 large plums, pitted and sliced

On cutting board using the flat of a knife, or with a mortar and pestle, mash together garlic with salt until a paste forms. In a small bowl, mix garlic paste with mayonnaise. Stir in the basil, thyme, sage and lemon juice.

Toast bread, then spread all 4 slices with herb mayonnaise. Sprinkle plums with lemon juice, to taste, and divide between 2 slices of bread. Cover plums with bacon, breaking bacon slices in half if necessary. Top with lettuce leaves and remaining bread. Cut in half and serve immediately.
