Late summer tomatoes, fresh farm herbs, local sourdough baguette, and hand-crafted vinegars make this simple recipe the best it can be.
- 1 sourdough baguette
- 1-2 Tbs olive oil or grassfed butter
- sea salt
- 1 fat garlic clove, cut in half
- block parmesan cheese
- 2 lbs ripe roma or heirloom tomatoes - or both!
- 20 fresh basil leaves
- 3 Tbs olive oil
- 1 Tb balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced
Preheat your broiler.
Dice the tomatoes into rough, bite-sized pieces. Chop the basil. Combine in a bowl with the oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic. Gently mix and set aside.
Slice the baguette into 1/3-1/2 inch slices and rub one side of each piece with a cut side of the garlic clove. Place evenly on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil or top with a small pat of butter.
