This is one of our favorite side dishes. It is quick to make but looks and tastes impressive. We like to serve this with pasta dishes.


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut baguette into thick slices, cutting diagonally.
  3. Crack garlic cloves and rub on bread slices. Bake bread until crispy.
  4. While the bread bakes, dice tomato, onion and cilantro. Place in small bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  5. When the bread is done toasting, top each slice with topping mixture and serve.

Delicious! I made these for my GF as a b-day appy - it is one of her favorites. Served it with a champagne and other assorted appys and fun tidbits - we had a fun nite in celebrating birthdays and holidays. This was easy, and flavorful - just what she wanted!! **Made for Beverage tag 2007**
