This is one great recipe; so easy and fresh tasting. I did make two slight changes for personal taste, added some chopped fresh basil to the tomatoes and topped with grated parm cheese prior to toasting. The tomatoes were so fresh, served as an appy for company prior to a spaghetti dinner and think it was a bigger hit than the dinner. This is going into my Best of book for this year.

Wow, I had a tapas party last night and I think this was my favorite of the many that made it on our table - and it was probably the most simple of them all too! I ended up using 5 roma tomatoes because my loaf was huge - even that didn't end up being enough. I also found out last minute my fresh garlic had gone bad so I mixed a bit of chopped garlic I have in my fridge into the tomato. Regardless, this dish was sooo sooo fresh and tasty. I think I like it even better than garlic bread! Thanks so much for sharing.
Very simple and yummy. I have seen this made by rubbing the cut tomato right on the toasted baquette in stead of using a grater. We enjoyed this with a nice glass of sangria (Sangria). This is a nice light snack or lunch. Made for ZWT 5.
This is so easy and good! I de-seeded my tomato first. This was my very first time of grating a tomato and it worked wonderfully. I toasted my baguette slices on the stove top. If you had time to roast the garlic, you could just squeeze a half of a clove on each baguette slice. I'll be making this again. LOVE IT.

Doesn't get any easier than this. Made for ZWT5. I used Baena Spanish olive oil and a very large Canadian imported tomato.
So quick! I love it! I even got impatient during the last part of grating the tomato since the sharp ones were getting close to my finger so I just finished it off with my thumb and index. I used fresh garlic so the taste was so strong. But the tomatoes balanced it and adding the oil's quite a change from butter too. Thanks! Made for ZWT5. Zaar Chow Hounds.
This was simple & delicious! I added some finely minced red onion to the tomato & used regular French Bread instead of a baguette. I forgot to toast the bread, but it still worked great! Made for the Groovy GastroGnomes of ZWT5 - Zingo pick.
Did not want a large lunch today, and this fit the bill perfectly! Couldn't be any easier. Prepared as Rita suggested, grating the garlic with the tomato. Will keep this in my cookbook, for sure. Thnx for posting, momaphet. Made for ZWT5 for RRR.
I made this a few days ago. To make a meal out of it I added some spanish olives and goat cheese. Such simple but yet delicious ingredients. I could eat it any time of day.
Amazingly simple and delicious. I can't wait to make this using fresh garden tomatoes. I may add fresh basil next time around. Made for Zingo *ZWT 5*
