When tomatoes are ripe and plentiful, this makes a delicious appetizer or light meal with a salad of mixed greens.


  1. 4 large, ripe tomatoes or 1 pint cherry tomatoes, chopped
  2. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  3. ½ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  4. ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
  6. 1 baguette or artisanal-style bread loaf, cut into slices ½-inch thick and grilled or toasted


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the tomatoes, garlic, basil, and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Slather on top of the grilled bread slices.
