If you’re in a place where tomatoes are still in their prime, this is a quick, easy, and tasty appetizer or side dish.
  • 2 cups (or so) of assorted tomatoes, sliced/halved/quartered into bite-size pieces
  • 8 (or so) slices of crusty bread (such as baguette, ciabatta, etc.)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • ¼ cup (or so) chopped basil
  1. Heat the gas or charcoal grill (if you heat a charcoal grill just for this, I really need to you take some of your extra time and use it for something else, like baking me cookies)
  2. Pile the tomatoes on top of a piece of tin foil. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, then close up the foil into a loose sort of packet.
  3. Place the packet on the grill for about 15-18 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, toast the slices of bread (or grill them, I suppose). Cut open the cloves of garlic, and rub the bread with the exposed face of the clove.
  5. When the tomatoes are ready, pile them on top and sprinkle with basil and salt as desired.
