Yum! I made a couple of changes to the recipe. I never like it when people do that and them rate the recipe but I am doing it anyway. I added olive oil to the toasted bread as brought up by another reviewer and thought it made the bread too moist and it would have been better crunchy to contrast with the texture of the other ingredents. I did brush the toast with a garlic clove and that was really good. I also used a juicy heirloom tomato. I was in heaven. Thanks for a great recipe Kana! I will be making this alot...without the oil.
This is a fast and delicious summertime lunch. I made them with english muffins. I thought I might try brushing the muffins with some olive oil next time for some added moisture. Thanks for a great recipe
