Grilled Tomato Toast

Advertisement

Ingredients

Kosher salt to taste

1½ pounds cherry tomatoes, halved

¾ cup olive oil, divided

1 bunch basil, leaves picked and torn, about 1 cup

6 (1-inch-thick) slices rustic bread, such as a sourdough

1 large garlic clove, peeled and halved

Flaky salt to finish

Beautiful summer tomatoes need little more than a sprinkle of salt to shine, but they’re irresistible tossed with fresh basil and piled atop grilled bread.

Directions

Salt tomatoes generously, toss with ½ cup olive oil and basil; let sit at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, brush both sides of sliced bread with remaining olive oil and grill until slightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Rub cut garlic over toast on both sides. Finish with flaky salt and arrange on a platter. Spoon tomatoes over toast to serve.
