Crispy garlic bread loaded with a tomato, onion, and basil yum-fest.

 1½ cups chopped roma tomatoes (6 to 8 tomatoes)
 2 Tablespoons diced red onion
 1 large clove garlic, minced
 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
 ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar
 ¼ teaspoon salt
 Dash of ground black pepper
 ½ loaf French baguette or crusty Italian bread, sliced into 5−7 slices
 ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
 2−3 sprigs Italian parsley

In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, garlic and basil. Add ½ tbsp. of oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix well. Cover bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour.


Preheat broiler, slice the bread in 1” slices diagonally to make 5−7 slices. Combine remaining 1 ½ tablespoons of oil with the garlic salt. Brush entire surface of each slice (both sides) with the olive oil mixture. Broil slices for 1 ½−2 minutes on each side until surface starts to brown.


Arrange bread like spokes of a wheel on plate. Put the chilled tomato mixture in a pile in the middle of the slices. Garnish with Italian parsley.
