- Cook Time 6 minutes
- 1 loaf French or Italian bread sliced into 1 1/2 – 2 – inch slices
- Olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 pint grape tomatoes sliced in half or 1 medium tomato, diced
- 1/4 cup onion diced
- 6-8 large basil leaves chopped
- Salt to taste
- Balsamic glaze optional
Drizzle olive oil onto a grill pan over medium heat. Place bread slices onto grill pan and drizzle tops with additional olive oil. Cut tip off of garlic clove and rub onto the top side of the bread slice. Grill bread until lightly toasted, flipping to grill the other side, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill to a serving platter.
Stir together tomatoes, onion, and basil leaves. Add salt and spoon onto the top of the grilled bread. Drizzle all slices with balsamic glaze, if you choose to use.
If you prefer, you can toast the bread in the oven rather than on a grill pan. Preheat oven to 400º F, drizzle baking sheet with olive oil and place bread slices onto the sheet pan. Drizzle with additional olive oil and rub with garlic clove as instructed. Bake until lightly toasted. Remove from oven and complete as instructed
