8 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1 French baguette
Fresh parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat the oven on broiler setting. In a large bowl, combine the roma tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes.
Cut the baguette into 3/4-inch slices. On a baking sheet, arrange the baguette slices in a single layer. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly brown. Divide the tomato mixture evenly over the baguette slices. Top the slices with parmesan cheese. Broil for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
Add some finely diced red onion to kick it up.
Add a tablespoon of capers.
