Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 4 slices rustic country-style or sourdough bread, sliced thick
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup virgin olive oil, best available
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, stems discarded, leaves chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced thinly (ideally yellow and red tomatoes)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Toast the bread in a toaster or oven until it is very brown.

  • Immediately after removing the bread from the toaster, rub a garlic clove over the entire surface of 1 side. Each slice should use up about 1/4 to 1/3 of a clove. (Be careful, when the garlic meets the toast's hot surface, it will create fumes that sting your eyes—just like an onion.)

  • Generously drizzle olive oil over each slice. Sprinkle basil over top, then top with tomato slices. Sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Slice into 1-inch strips, or quarters, and serve immediately.
