Ingredients:

4-6 Roma tomatoes

Slice the tomatoes in half and squeeze out a bit of the seeds and juice. y Chop and dice coarsely. Chop 2  cloves of garlic then chop or tear basil leaves into small pieces.

Mix tomatoes, garlic and basil together with enough olive oil to moisten, add a half teaspoon of salt and set aside for 20 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

 Slice crusty bread into thick slices then toast lightly, rubbing each slice with a garlic clove.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Just before serving spoon tomato mixture onto bread. Bellissimo!
