One word - GARLIC! Please add garlic to this and you won't be disappointed. Otherwise, it is kinda bland.

I've made this with both fresh tomatoes and canned/diced and results are excellent either way.

Excellent, quick and easy. Have made several times for a quick appetizer. Most of the ingredients I usually have on hand. Just have to pick up an onion, a loaf of bread, some tomatos and some basil.

This was so yummy! I made this for a dinner party for nine that I catered. I doubled the recipe so everyone could have two, but I didn't need to; it made a lot more than it said. I forgot to put the basil in--oops! I don't think anyone noticed it missing as it was delicious without it; however, the basil would have added another layer of flavor. I followed another rater's advice and toasted my bread in a pan after brushing the slices with olive oil and then rubbed a cut clove of garlic over the toast--yum. Also,I didn't drain the tomato mixture; I seeded the tomatoes beforehand and then used a slotted spoon to top the bread. Use up another baguette to sop up the juices afterward. It's too good to go down the drain!

This was my contribution for a Tapas & Sangria party, and was a huge hit. I read one review in which the cook chose to leave out the capers and olives. Dude, you missed the entire point of the dish! The flavors are really big for such a small bite.
