It's really quick to make and put together.
Please see the notes at the bottom for Cook's Tips to help you.
To serve 2 as a main or 4 as a starter:
First of all chop up your tomatoes, put them into a bowl, season with a pinch of sea salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Give them a stir round and leave to rest whilst you prepare the basil dressing.
Chop the majority of the basil finely - leave a few leaves whole to garnish if you like.
Put around 3 Tablespoons of olive oil, 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and chopped basil into a bowl. Whisk well to combine.(See TIPS)
Toast the bread - either under a grill or on a griddle.
Rub the bread with the garlic cloves and brush on some olive oil.
Put the bread(s) onto serving plates and pile the tomatoes on. There should be some lovely juice in the bottom of the bowl, so share this round by spooning on top.
Drizzle with the basil dressing and serve immediately.
This will taste sooooo good!

This tomato basil recipe is simplicity itself. You can serve it on any flatbread (as here) for a main course or bruschetta as a starter - unless you've got a huge appetite of course! The bruschetta would be great for serving as part of a buffet meal - great for a party..
