2 1/2 cups grape, pear, or cherry tomatoes
3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
Cooking spray
4 (1-ounce) slices gluten-free French bread
1 garlic clove, halved


1. Combine first 8 ingredients, and let stand 1 hour.

2. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add tomato mixture, and cook 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add bread; cook 2 minutes on each side or until toasted. Rub 1 side of each toast slice with the cut sides of garlic clove halves. Serve tomato mixture over toast.


Heating the tomatoes intensifies their sweetness while preserving their bright, fresh flavor.
