Ingredients

1/2 baguette or crusty long loaf bread, sliced (12 pieces)

2 large cloves garlic, cracked away from skin

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

3 small plum tomatoes, halved and seeded

20 fresh basil leaves

Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler to high, (if you prefer you can also grill the bread). Place bread slices on a broiler pan. Char bread on each side under hot broiler, keep an eye on it! Rub toasts with cracked garlic and drizzle with oil. Chop seeded tomatoes and place in a small bowl. Pile basil leaves on top of one another and roll into a log. Thinly slice basil into green confetti and loosely combine with tomatoes. Add a drizzle of oil and a little coarse salt to the bowl and gently toss tomatoes and basil to coat. Pile toasts around the bowl of topping. Place a spoon to scoop topping in bowl and serve.
