roma tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
red onion, finely chopped
fresh cilantro, finely chopped
garlic cloves, finely chopped
extra virgin olive oil
mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Combine the first six ingredients. Let them blend for an hour at room temperature.
- Preheat the oven broiler on medium or low, just high enough to brown cheese and warm the tomato mixture.
- Slice up the french bread into 1.5" thick slices. Drizzle olive oil in a hot nonstick pan and place french bread in the pan. Sautee until brown and crisped and then turn over. Add more olive oil as needed.
- When bread is browned evenly on both sides, remove to a baking sheet. Top each slice of bread with a mound of the tomato mixture. Top with a small scattering of mozzarella cheese and put under the broiler until cheese is browned and bubbly.
- Serve immediately.
