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.
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.
