I read this recipe first in Orangette, my new favorite blog. Made it for Dani & I tonight whilst watching Vampire Diaries. Let me just say, it is SO good… like so good that it’s all I want to eat now. Definitely a keeper.
First of all, tear some bread up into pieces (I used ACME ciabatta), toss w/ olive oil, spread out on a baking sheet, and sprinkle w/ salt. Bake for 10 minutes.
While that’s baking, chop up some heirloom tomatoes, rip up some basil, (I added fresh mozzarella bc Miss Dani doesn’t do tomatoes, and I couldn’t give her just bread), throw in some halved cloves of garlic (these will be removed later), salt & pepper, sprinkle w/ olive oil and a bit of vinegar (I used the ‘Three Orchards Blend’ olive oil & pomegranate vinegar I bought at Dry Creek Olive Oil Co). Next time I’m going to leave the mozzarella out…
Once the bread is crisp & toasty, toss w/ the tomato basil mixture and let sit a couple of minutes, toss out the garlic and you are ready to go…. again, it’s so good. This photo really doesn’t do it justice… I may just have to make it again!
