I made this for a potluck and brought along some toasted baguette slices, and it was a hit. The balsamic vinegar is pretty strong but the flavor is soooo good on sourdough. I'll probably mix it up some, different vinegars, shallots, basil, etc.

- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

- Thinly slice half a baguette. Place the rounds on a baking sheet and broil them until they're golden brown (about 1 1/2 minutes per side).
