Instructions Begin by slicing the bread into thick pieces, allowing enough surface area to pile up our vibrant tomato topping.

Chop the cherry tomatoes and fresh basil into small pieces. The size will affect the texture, so think about how you’d like to experience the final product.

Mix the chopped tomatoes and basil together in a bowl. Drizzle with half of the olive oil and add salt to taste. Let the mixture sit to allow the flavors to infuse.

In the meantime, toast your bread slices to your preferred level of crunchiness. Once toasted, drizzle each slice with the remaining olive oil.

Finally, top your toasted bread slices with the tomato and basil mixture. Serve immediately to savor the contrasting temperatures of the warm bread and cool topping.
