A simple recipe that always puts everyone in agreement, where the difference is the quality of the ingredients: bread and extra virgin olive oil at first.
Make your choice for tomatoes: either the classic Neapolitan San Marzano DOP or the tasty Sicilian cherry tomatoes!!
…… and don’t forget some leaves of fresh basil!!!
- 6 slices of bread
- 400 gr. red tomatoes
- 6 basil leaves
- 10 sp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 pinch of salt
- 1 pinch of pepper”
Wash and dry the tomatoes, remove the seeds with a knife, cut them in small cubes an put them in a bowl.
Add salt and half part of the garlic and let them rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile put the slices of bread to toast and when golden, scrape the surface with the remaining garlic.
Remove the water from the tomatoes, add 6 spoon of oil and the basil leaves.
At this point use the remaining oil directly on the bread toasted slices, then with a spoon put the tomatoes salad on the bread.
