  • Sourdough or ciabatta bread sliced in 1/2 inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

Tomato Topping:

  • 4 medium tomatoes firm and ripe (chopped / I remove the seeds and extra pulp)
  • 1 cup yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion diced

Make the Bread:

  • Heat a grill pan or turn on the grill, and once hot lightly brush bread slices with olive oil and place on the grill or grill pan. Grill for about 2 minutes, or until toasted, turn and grill on the other side.

  • In a medium bowl mix together all the Tomato Topping ingredients, serve over the freshly toasted bread, with a little drizzle of Balsamic vinegar and fresh basil leaves.
