Oh I know, everyone shows making individual slices and chopping the tomatoes. If you want a quick sanck or side dish, do it the traditional way!
Slice Italian or French bread lengthwise and toast in oven or broiler.
While the bread is toasting, peel fresh garlic cloves – about 1 clove for each 6 inches of bread.
When bread is toasted, run the garlic clove back and forth over the surface. The garlic will shred into the bread.
Drizzle the bread with extra-virgin olive oil.
Top with thin tomato slices and fresh basil.
