Plum tomatoes usually have better flavor and are less watery than other tomatoes during the off season, so they are great for this recipe. If you're without a baking sheet, carefully arrange the bread slices directly on the oven rack.
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped pitted green olives
1 teaspoon capers
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
4 (1-inch-thick) slices French bread baguette
1 garlic clove, halved
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375º.
Combine first 9 ingredients.
Lightly coat both sides of bread slices with cooking spray; arrange bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 375º for 4 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted.
Rub 1 side of bread slices with halved garlic; top evenly with tomato mixture.
I made these for a Christmas party and they were gone in about 5 minutes. They are easy to make and I would definitely make this again. I wouldn't change a thing about the recipe other than doubling or trippling the recipe. Delicious!
