1 large loaf crusty peasant or country bread

olive oil for brushing the bread

4 large cloves garlic, cut in half

3 large tomatoes

Fleur de sel or coarse salt if desired


  1. Pre-heat oven broiler. Slice bread into thick slices, generously brush them with olive oil and place them on a cookie sheet. Place bread under broiler and toast until golden. 
  2. Cut tomatoes in half. Cut each garlic clove in half and rub each bread slice with the cut side of a garlic clove. Rub toast with tomatoes, squeezing slightly to distribute juice and seeds evenly on bread. Sprinkle with fleur de sel or coarse salt and serve immediately.
