Anchovy fillets or serrano ham can also be added to these crusty bread slices. Found on and originated from Sunset magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. On a grill, grill pan, or in a toaster, toast bread until golden brown.
  2. Rub peeled garlic cloves on toast if using. Cutting tomatoes in half crosswise, rub toast squeezing gently so toast is coated with juice, bits of tomato, and seeds.
  3. Drizzle toast with olive oil and sprinkle with salt to taste, serve immediately.

I really enjoyed this! I used ciabatta buns and made exactly as directed. I really liked the drizzle of olive oil and the coarse sea salt was a great finish. I didn't rub the garlic on the bread too much because I didn't want it to be too strong for the rest of my family. We had this with Lemon Roasted Chicken. Made for Went to the Market. Thanks Lauralie41! :)

I toasted my bread under the broiler, rubbed with garlic and then used grape tomatoes. An easy and tasty snack! Thanks Lauralie!

Lori, I really loved this tasty treat. I grilled the ciabatta, rubbed the garlic all over and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just the right amount of garlic, tomatoes, oil and salt. It was perfect, made for a very nice lunch. The only thing I did differently was to cut the bread thin rather than thick, personal preference only.
I can't believe how simple it was and with ingredients that I always have on hand. I'm already craving it again. Thank you so much for a recipe that I will make again and again. Made for Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Spain.
