We make this recipe often and enjoy it ever time. In a pinch, I have used dried herbs with excellent results.
Make the oil and oven-dried tomato mixture up to two days ahead and refrigerate; let it stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 5 tablespoons tomato mixture, 3 bread slices, and about 1/2 teaspoon basil)
