Ingredients

  • 3 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 12 tbsp red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • 1 baguette, French bread or similar Italian bread

Instructions

  1. Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, salt, pepper and oil in a large mixing bowl. Feel free to add more or less oil. If you’re oil-free, replaced the oil by some lemon juice or balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
  2. Use a bread knife to slice the bread on the diagonal, making 1/2 or 3/4 inch thick slices (about 1 to 2 cm).
  3. Toast the bread. I always use a griddle, but feel free to use a grill pan, a skillet, a toaster, the oven, etc. Some people add some oil to the bread before toasting it, but I think it’s not necessary.
  4. Place bread on a platter and top with the tomato mixture. Serve immediately.
  5. Best when fresh, you can keep the tomato mixture in the fridge in an airtight container for 1 to 2 days. I prefer to toast the bread just before serving.
