Grilled Tomato and Basil Bruschetta

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by 2hot2handle

What can I say? Absolutely sublime, but ONLY make with the freshest, ripest tomatoes. Prep time does not include the 20 minutes of "sit" time for the tomatoes.

So simple and yet soooo good! I've done this many times. When I don't need a lot, but just want a snack, I take some out of the refrigerator, toast some bread and put it on toast. Great summer appetizer!

  1. Place the cut tomatoes into a bowl and salt them. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add the garlic, basil and olive oil, stir to combine and let sit for another 10 minutes.
  2. Cut the french bread into thick (1 inch) slices. Grill the slices until just toasted and slightly charred, about 1 minute per side.
  3. Top the grilled bread slices with the tomato mixture and serve immediately.
